The film

Synopsis

Bruno (Jeremie Renier) is 20, Sonia (Deborah Francois) is 19. They live by using Sonia’s benefit - and the thefts committed by Bruno and 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? With their highly acclaimed Cannes 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 that gives the film its strength.
