79 – The Kid With A Bike/ Le gamin au vélo (2012)

Standard

Director: Luc Dardenne, Jean-Pierre Dardenne Starring: Thomas Doret, Cécile De France, Jérémie Renier Running time: 87 mins

Despite great performances, the Dardennes brothers’ small-town drama about a kid’s explosive response to paternal abandonment feels stretched by its feature length.

Core truth: Hold out for a hero.
