THE KID WITH A BIKE

DIRECTOR: Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne - BELGIUM

The Dardennes’ latest film centers on Cyril, a restless 11-year-old boy placed in a children’s home after being abandoned by his father. Unwilling to face the fact that parents are imperfect people, Cyril runs away to his former apartment block in search of both Dad and his abandoned bicycle. Rebuffed by his father, he meets Samantha, a kind hairdresser who helps to retrieve his bike and eventually agrees to become his weekend guardian. But literally and figuratively, Cyril isn’t out of the woods just yet. Shooting once more in the Belgian seaport town of Seraing, the Dardennes have created another poetic, universally resonant drama about parents, children, and moral responsibility. (87 mins.)

Selected Filmography: The Sons (92), La Promesse (96), Rosetta (99), The Child (05), Lorna’s Silence (08).

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

In French with English subtitles.

Sponsored by Southpark Seafood Grill.
