THE KID WITH A BIKE @ GRAND CINEMA

I was at the Grand Cinema yesterday, and found out that this film will run, at least one more week, through May 3. So, in way of a reminder, get yourselves down there and see this film while you can.

Rating: PG-13
Length: 87 minutes
Year: 2011
Actors: Cécile De France, Thomas Doret, Jérémie Renier, Fabrizio Rongione

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival and a Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, the deeply moving new film by the Dardenne brothers delves into the emotional life of troubled 11-year-old Cyril (Thomas Doret). When his father (Jérémie Renier) abandons him, Cyril obsessively searches for his bicycle – placing his last bit of hope in this symbol of their relationship. Almost by accident, he becomes the ward of a kind hairdresser (Cécile de France), who seems surprised to find herself so determined to help him. With his wild, unpredictable behavior and his disastrous search for father figures, Cyril risks losing her – though she refuses to give up without a fight.

In French with English subtitles.

Young Thomas Doret fills the role with natural sincerity and focus, and not a second that seems contrived. — Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

A quietly rapturous film about love and redemption from Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne… — Manohla Dargis, New York Times

Belgium’s Dardenne brothers make movies that remind you the most compelling stories are unfolding right outside your window, rather than in outer space, the distant past or wherever cinema usually takes us. — Peter Debruge, Variety
