A young, African fugitive is rescued by an old shoeshiner who rallies a few neighbours, and ends up with an unlikely ally. This film transcends time and space to portray with dry humour what obstinate humanism can be.
Winner of the Gold Hugo Award at the 2012 International Chicago Film Festival
“Figuring that we already know something about how harsh life can be, [Aki Kaurismäk] reminds us of its modest charms and fleeting beauties, and of how easy it is, in the face of cruelty, to behave decently.’’
- A.O. Scott, New York Times
