The Kid With A Bike - Review

ACTS OF KINDNESS Thomas Doret and Cecile de France in The Kid With a Bike 

Add young Thomas Doret to the short list of nonprofessional kid actors who, aided by gifted directors, deliver truly astounding performances. It's impossible to tear one's eyes away from Doret in this typically naturalistic, unsentimental drama from the superb Belgian filmmakers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (RosettaThe Son) about a sad, furious 11-year-old boy, abandoned by his father and taken in by a hairdresser (Cécile de France), to her own surprise. No one charts the wilds of childhood more precisely than the Dardennes. A,,20578464,00.html
