    TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT

    JEAN-PIERRE DARDENNE, LUC DARDENNE Belgium, 2014

    With this proletarian drama, the Dardenne brothers made one of their finest in an illustrious career filled with social-realist masterworks. Attuned to the complexities of its rich cast of characters, and led by a never-better Marion Cotillard, Two Days, One Night is as enveloping as cinema gets.

    THE UNKNOWN GIRL

    JEAN-PIERRE DARDENNE, LUC DARDENNE Belgium, 2016

    Injecting a dose of neo-noir into melodrama, the Dardenne brothers reinvigorate their signature moral intrigue with a daring detective film. Starring Adèle Haenel in an impressive lead performance, The Unknown Girl is never squeamish about probing French attitudes to race and immigration.

    YOUNG AHMED

    JEAN-PIERRE DARDENNE, LUC DARDENNE Belgium, 2019

    The Dardenne Brothers won the Best Director award at Cannes for this beautifully rendered character study, featuring an extraordinary performance from Idir Ben Addi. In line with their body of social realism, Young Ahmed is an empathetic look at the humanity behind a sensationalized subject.
