  • What it means in practice is that, with a Dardennes movie, nothing much seems to be going on - until everything seems to be going on. We watch events at a remove, and then, at a certain magical point, we are in the story, and we don't quite know how they did it - again. show more

  • Working on a scale that's minuscule by studio standards, the Dardenne brothers have made yet another movie that does what Hollywood used to do - keep us rapt, and leave us grateful. show more

  • It's the powerful emotional punch their films deliver - and this one is no exception - that elevate the game, that make them so satisfying, so worthwhile. The Kid With a Bike grabs at the heart. show more

    I am surprised that no on has mentioned that this is a remake of another movie of the same name. I liked the original better. I am most of all more amazed that this movie won the award. This is but a mere remake of an original.

    This was one of the best films I have ever seen. I cried out of sadness for the character Cyril. The actor who played Cyril, Thomas Doret, was so awesome. Where did they find this kid? I loved him and I hope this won\'t be his only film. I highly recommend this film.

    Just like the character of Cyril, I got knocked off my bike with such abruptness---Cyril due to his past and myself with wondering why the movie was ending half finished---so unsatisfying
