They have won the Palme d’Or twice with their special brand of compassionate realism, and this latest film from Belgian filmmaking brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne is one of their best. It follows an abandoned 11-year-old boy in a determined search for his father. Placed in a children’s home with only a bike and an address where his father once lived, Cyril sets out – pursued by authorities – to find the man he believes must love him. Relentlessly obstinate, Cyril attaches himself to a caring hairdresser who tries her best to help him navigate the pain of parental rejection.
