Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 06/10/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "With authentic performances from many of the director's regular coterie of actors, it lifts the spirits."
New York Times - 10/21/2011
"[A] tale of lower-depths solidarity, a stylized and sentimental fairy tale about the way the world might be, grounded in a frank recognition of the way it is....LE HAVRE is also a love letter to France..."
Wall Street Journal - 10/21/2011
"[A] Finnish filmmaker's tribute, in French, to the glory days of French cinema....With a bountiful supply of visual and verbal references that manage to enrich the film without interrupting its flow."
Los Angeles Times - 10/21/2011
"LE HAVRE joins Kaurismaki's unmistakable stylistic flourishes with two things that are relatively new to his repertory: an over social conscience and a sweet-natured fairy tale sensibility."
Movieline - 10/20/2011
"Frame by frame, it's a marvel of lighting -- the images look soft and bright at once, as if old Hollywood craftsmanship had been happily wed with modern straightforwardness and simplicity."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/10/2011
"[A] perfect, deadpan, impishly optimistic fairy tale about French tolerance from the great Finnish filmmaker Aki Kaurismaki." -- Grade: A
Washington Post - 12/09/2011
4 stars out of 4 -- "Alternately lighthearted and deeply spiritually grounded....A fanciful fable, all the more affecting for being so tethered to the urgencies of the real world."
Total Film - 05/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] warm-hearted salute to both classical French cinema and working-class solidarity."
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2012
"Kaurismaki displays a sustained grace in negotiating the boundary between bathos and true poignancy....Its thoughtfully evoked political context and subtle moral ambiguity lend it texture and depth."
