A skillful and gripping drama!My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
Thomas Doret is convincing as a boy coping with sudden abandonment by his father. He is taken in on a whim by a local hairdresser, but starts to fall in with the charismatic leader of a group of trouble-causing teens. I did not fully understand what led the man to leave his son. This is an enjoyable film for a Sunday afternoon, with some interesting scenes but overall not the most memorable. Doret's performance stood out as the most realistic.My Movie Rating: 7 / 10
Pretty good and definitely worth seeing but the Dardenne brothers have made better movies, including La Promesse, which stars the boy actor Jérémie Renier. Renier went on to an adult acting career, starred in the gay Holocaust drama Un Amour à taire/A Love to Hide, and plays the father in this movie!My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
The boy was great but why would a young woman take such an interest in looking after him? Was it me or did this movie just come to an abrupt end?My Movie Rating: 6 / 10
