First time Dardenne viewer? I was.
The Kid with a Bike review
15th August 2012
This was my first Dardenne Brothers film. Heavyweight European Directors are always a risky choice, critical acclaim can often lead to viewer disappointment. The Kid with a Bike was seen to be their most accessible film so I thought it was time to give them a go. Very believable performances, realistic characters and a touching ending makes this the benchmark for future Dardenne rentals. With risk comes unexpected rewards.
