Filme maravilhoso, uma ode à solidariedade num presente que tanto nos faz crer dela distante.23 Janeiro 2019
"Le Havre had all the master's trademarked deadpan dialogue and delicious nuggets of bone-dry humour, and his compassion for the marginalised and dispossessed, but with something richer and sweeter than I remember from his previous pictures. His sensibility is closer to that of Chaplin, in this film, than anyone else."
"A deadpan delight. With its bouncy soundtrack, deadpan humor and good-natured disposition, Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki’s “Le Havre” is an endearing affair. Combining his clownish storytelling with a life-affirming plot, Kaurismaki churns a fundamental scenario through his own unique narrative tendencies, yielding a product both heartwarming and irreverent, two qualities that should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with his distinctive touch. Beyond that, it also introduces an element of political commentary to the director’s work that deepens its impact. "
"Le Havre couldn’t have been made by anyone other than Kaurismäki: It manages to be lyrical even though it moves forward in the typical Kaurismäki fits-and-starts. Its jokes are so gentle, and delivered with such deadpan assurance, that it sometimes takes a split second for you to register how absurdly funny they are. It’s also a gently pointed political statement"
