  1. kinotopia's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    mentally ill white foster kid has been rejected by his dad. whimsical hairdresser arbitrarily decides to host him on weekends. white kid gets involved with brown kid and assaults two people because he craves a paternal bond. brown kid gets arrested and white kid gets to go on a bike ride. the white kid is redeemed after he falls off a tree. this is almost as bad as "boyhood".

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    Une limpide réalisation, d'une subtile fluidité visuelle, à la mesure de la fougueuse agilité du gracile personnage principal, sans fioritures inutiles ni digressions psychologiques, qui confirme à nouveau l'extrême importance des frères Dardenne dans le vaste paysage cinématographique européen... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    A solid enough depiction of the challenges of growing up. Perhaps a little too French......?

  4. Ethan's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    This was a gut wrenching coming of age story with outstanding performances and a very realistic tone that challenges the viewer to embrace what is happening.

  10. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    (...) Doch die Dardenne Brüder verweigern derartige dramatische Höhepunkte. Mit ihrer knappen und direkten Art zeigen sie das Leben selbst: Die Angst eines kleinen Jugen davor, einfach weggeworfen zu werden. Cyril denkt immer noch, der Vater hätte ihn bloss vergessen und würde ihn zurückholen, so dass alles wieder gut wird (...)

  11. Ioana's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    cheap thrills & sheltering conservative approach, always attentive not to shock the viewer. the undeniable strong point is in the boy's acting.

  13. James Mackin's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    I feel like I'm the only person that wanted the kid to die.

  14. IsmailBakry's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    this is a minimally produced film with a tremendous amount of humanly emotions. it's yet far from leaving the strong impression compared to other Dradennes' features.

  15. SafeStanding's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    The Dardenne brothers owe the success of this film almost entirely to the fine acting of Thomas Doret in this story of rejection and adoption. A very touching movie.

  21. ikkini's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    C'est mignon, mais c'est pas le meilleur film des Dardenne...

  22. Ahmed Hasan's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

  23. mpho3's rating of the film The Kid with a Bike

    "The Dardennes, in a rare gesture of seemingly cosmic oversight, play the tone of The Kid with a Bike against type, transforming a bleak film into one more interested in humanity's capacity for goodness and compassion even (or perhaps especially) when it presents itself as an opportunity without cause or reason." - Calum Marsh, Slant. Fine performances from the leads and great ending.
