André Wilms plays Marcel Marx, a former writer who shines shoes for a living and cares for his beloved wife and a young refugee from Africa.

Kaurismäki tackled the question of African immigration to Europe in this typically tender and humanistic tale set in the French port city. Kati Outinen plays Marcel’s wife, whose sudden hospitalisation coincides with his decision to help a young orphan (Blondin Miguel), who arrives in a shipping container. Jean-Pierre Darroussin plays a tenacious cop, and there are the usual musical interludes plus Laika, the fifth-generation hound to bear this name.

              – David Stratton, Retrospective Curator 


Seductively funny, offbeat and warm-hearted… but with a new heartfelt urgency on the subject of refugees. – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
