socially-aware contemporary political drama
regarding Belgium's working-class."
by Dennis Schwartz
The acclaimed Belgian filmmaker brothers, Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne ("Rosetta"/"The Child"/"The Kid With A Bike"), helm this slight but socially-aware contemporary political drama regarding Belgium's working-class. The heart-felt film explores the human condition, workplace injustice and how the industrial workers struggle to survive in such a challenging environment.
