Three by the Dardenne Brothers

3 Episodes

Ever since making their mark in the midnineties with LA PROMESSE, Belgian masters Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne have been a singular force in world cinema, honing their unique style of unembellished, heart-racing humanism in acclaimed slice-of-life dramas like THE CHILD and THE KID WITH A BIKE. They excel at the “empathetic action film”: urgent, uncompromisingly realistic tales set on the margins of society that unfold like taut thrillers of the everyday. Each starring their frequent collaborator Jérémie Renier, this trio of masterpieces displays the searing emotional intensity and deeply felt social conscience that have made the pair among the most lauded filmmakers working today.
