    CANNES REVIEW | Aki Kaurismaki's "Le Havre" Is a Deadpan Delight

    With its bouncy soundtrack, deadpan humor and good-natured disposition, Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki's "Le Havre" is an endearing affair. Combining his clownish storytelling with a life-affirming plot, Kaurismaki churns a fundamental scenario through his own unique narrative te...

    CANNES REVIEW | "The Kid With a Bike" at Once New and Too Familiar
