On Monday, July 15, at the Playhouse Cinema, Louth Film Club will be screening the offbeat but warmhearted comedy drama Le Havre, set in the Normandy port of that name.
A French/Finnish co-production, directed by Finland’s Aki Kaurismäki, Le Havre tells the story of an elderly shoe-shine man who shelters a young African boy, an illegal immigrant, from the authorities. It’s a charming story full of engaging characters, including the shoe-shine man’s frail wife, a tenacious but sympathetic policeman looking for the boy and Little Bob, a local rock star.
Le Havre is Certificate PG. The show starts at 7.30pm. Non-members are welcome, paying the normal Playhouse Cinema ticket prices. Further details about the club and its films can be found on its website: www.louthfilmclub.com
