The Child /L'Enfant (12a) 2005

d. J & L Dardenne Belg 91mins

This hugely acclaimed drama won a host awards including the top Palm d’or prize at Cannes in 2005.

A powerful, gripping and suspenseful drama – a compassionate yet unsentimental account of guilt and redemption.

" L'Enfant deals in matters of (organized) crime and punishment without compromising its emotional acuity or spiritual purity."

Adam Nayman (The Ringer, 2020)
