Before the film went into production, director Aki Kaurismäki had the idea to make a film about African children living in Europe. Aki Kaurismäki originally wanted to set the location of the film in Marseille or a port city in Spain and Portugal. But when he discovered Wenxin Harbor, he decided to shoot the film there. Aki Kaurismäki thinks that Wenxin Harbor is not only suitable for the filming of the film, but it is also appropriate to use Wenxin Harbor as the name of the film.
On March 23, 2010, the film officially started shooting. The film cost a total of 3.8 million euros, of which the Finnish Film Foundation provided 750,000 euros. During the filming, local residents of Wenxin Harbor and some real people participated in the filming of the film. Filming ended on May 12, 2010   .

    Chicago International Film Festival. Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki's "Le havre" (2011) is cold and humorous, full of human concern. Great dialogue and performance. In Port of France, marginalized communities, people from the underprivileged, and African immigrants, as always, touch on social issues. It is a pity that the second half of the film is tired and stereotyped, "last minute rescue", misunderstanding of the police detective, everyone is happy, weakening the critical power of the film. let pierre rio also appear

    The film chooses a port city as the place where the story takes place. The theme of "wandering" is self-evident, but the director provides hope for the audience with kind and almost stubborn characters and a fairytale-like story. Even the usual blue-gray tones, minimal dialogue, and dilapidated furniture do not bring any sadness. The light of humanity reflected from the little characters in the film conveys endless kindness, which makes people feel extremely warm.
