THE KID WITH A BIKE

SF, Berkeley & San Rafael.

Dardenne brothers were in competiton @ the last Cannes Festival with their 5th movie.

 

They are used to be in the Croisette's spotlight with already 2 Palmes d'Or: Rosetta back in 1999 et the Kid in 2005. In 2011, they received the Grand Jury Prize for The Kid with a Bike.

 

 

The movie was part of the selection @ the French Cinema Now festival in October. If you missed it then, the movie will be released on March 23.

 


Cécile de France (who played in the movie Hereafter by Clint Eastwood and who was so funny in Russian dolls) is going to help, protect and love the child with the same dedication and tenderness as if he was her own.

 

And Thomas Doret embodies perfectly the rebellious young "lad", full of anger and bitterness, who runs a dizzying race in search of his father who abandonned him.

 

 

Dardenne brothers have their very own specific style and they remained true to it with the Kid with a Bike: a story with just a few words, and emphasizing pictures, music and settings to suggest the emotions, sorrows and vulnerability of its characters.
