THE CHILD (L'Enfant)Bruno (Jeremie Renier) is twenty, Sonia (Deborah Francois) is eighteen. They live by using Sonia’s benefit and the thefts committed by Bruno and the kids in his gang. Sonia has just given birth to Jimmy, their child.
How can Bruno become a father, being so carefree and living as he does for the present, solely concerned about the money from his deals?
In their highly acclaimed Palme d’Or winner, the Dardennes have created a beautifully acted, exquisitely observed morality tale.
It is also the powerful central performance by Jeremie Renier as Bruno gives the film its strength.
