Special Presentation

11-year-old Cyril's only connection to his father, who left him in a children's home, is his bike. Desperately trying to retrieve his bike and reunite with his father, the kid is charged with confusion and anger. When local hairdresser Samantha agrees to foster Cyril on the weekends, she finds herself battling his self-destructive tendencies. Awarded the Grand Prix at this year's Cannes Film Festival, this tale of redemptive love bares the Dardennes’ evocative signature style.
