Who is that boy named Francis? If Olivier refused to take him into his carpentry workshop, why has he taken to following him in the training centre, in the streets, in his building? Why does Oliver seem so interested in him and so afraid of him? By the acclaimed Dardenne brothers.
The camera work! Boy i'm still out of breath. It's like Olivier Gourmet is bound to explode at any given moment. I love that...but it was all so subtle...I waited 10 years to see this...I did not see it when it first came out, but it was well worth the wait...
this is a movie that requires maturity in life rather than skill in cinema. a real masterpiece that has more insight to life than almost any film I have ever watched. truly a great film that shows what cinema can really do.
Art as a reflection of life. The Dardennes seem to have this magical way of making seemingly simple stories completely and totally riveting. The acting, emotions and visuals are magical, as expected but the one thing about this film, compared to the other two I've seen by them that's very different is the suspense. This film is very suspenseful. Personally I loved it. Favorite film I've seen by them this far.
