In Le Havre, an African boy is found by a Frenchman, who takes the boy to his small, clean apartment and hides him from the law. Soon, the man's neighbors are helping the African boy-the women, the men, a police officer. This is, of course, a fairy tale-the press materials explicitly label it as such. And it is here we find the greatness of this profoundly political movie (and one of my favorite movies of the year). (CHARLES MUDEDE)
