Since his first film in 1983, an adaptation of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, the Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki, an admirer of Bresson and Ozu, has shown a growing empathy for the poor and marginalized, through a universe at once melancholy and whimsical, tinged with black humor. After The Man Without a Past in 2002, the Helsinki film addict still loves filming doomed places, like the popular area of Havre, destined to disappear after the shooting. It is in his charming company, guided by his insightful comments that we dive into the mysteries of Le Havre.
