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.

The Dardenne brothers are two of Belgium's most famous filmmakers, along with Chantal Akerman, director of Je, tu, il, elle; Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles; and News from Home. This Dardenne film is pretty good and definitely worth seeing but the brothers have made better movies, including Two Days, One Night and, earlier, La Promesse, which stars the boy actor Jérémie Renier. Renier went on to an adult acting career; the best later films he's appeared in are The Child, also by the Dardenne brothers, and the gay Holocaust drama Un Amour à taire/A Love to Hide. He plays the father in this movie.

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?

Thomas Doret does a great job in the lead role. The behaviors of two of the other main characters were not believable to me.
