When the Parent Is "L'Enfant"

I'm a huge fan of Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, the filmmakers behind "L'Enfant." The films of this Beligan bro duo is a continuum in the exploration of human frality and moral dilemmas, similar to Krzysztof Kieslowski's "Decalogue." So, yes, I recommend their current movie "L'Enfant." The flick is like a Lars Von Trier flick minus the sadism toward its characters. The Dardenne brothers demonstrate supreme film craftsmanship and human compassion. Check it out.
