Abandoned by an irresponsible father, 12-year-old Cyril (Thomas Doret, making a naturalistic screen debut) refuses to admit rejection even as his obstinacy threatens the growing bond between him and a patient woman (Cecile de France) whose compassion offers his only hope. Persuaded to commit a crime by a manipulative young hoodlum, Cyril looks like he's about to throw his life away. Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (La Promesse) offer their most accessible neorealist tale without getting too sentimental. [Trailers, LJ 1/13.] (c) Copyright 2013.
