Share this article

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
