Le Havre background creation

2022-03-30 08:01
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   .

    1. The most warm and heart-warming Aki, except for the whistleblower next door, who is a guest star of Jean-Pierre Leaud, all the members are good-hearted people. After the false alarm at the end of the double line, everyone is happy, like a god Tragedy - This just fits with the passage where the male protagonist polishes the shoes of the priest outside the church (talking about [Matthew's Gospel] "But Christ still came to the world"), another interesting irony is that the shoe shiner mocks his own profession "The most disrespectful of [the Sermon on the Mount]," no wonder the film won the Catholic Humane Award at Cannes - special mention (laughs). 2. Discuss the issue of smuggling refugees, but there is no bitterness or hatred. Although the studio moved to France, he is still familiar with Aki. The minimalist atmosphere is like Bresson, and the empty mirror transitions and the ending cherry blossoms are like Ozu, as elegant as Ozu. The oil paintings are cold with warm colors, as well as retro furnishings and nostalgic tones. 3. See also the record player and the radio, Bob's rock concert is really good! 4. The little Bob in the bar was hidden in the darkness alone. When his wife came, the two were instantly bathed in light, and the lyrical music sounded, which was very moving. 5.- "Why should I trust you?" - "Because I have blue eyes." (8.5/10)

    The first big-screen Kaurismaki work. Great OST. The setting of helping smuggled black teenagers, no matter how you look at it, is a bit vulgar, but I really like the life attitude of making fun of hardships, and the image tone that hides warmth in coldness. At one time, I thought of the movie as desperate, for example, my wife who felt colic would definitely die, but in the end, the cherry blossoms bloomed.
