A Child Redeemed, 18 Mar 2013
A moving portrait of a very unhappy child brilliantly and energetically played by the unknown actor, Thomas Doret.
Cecile de France is a most sympathetic actor and a pleasure to watch. Indeed there is no tendency to portray any of the care workers as unpleasant, in spite of the very difficult and provocative behaviour of Cyril. His father was also not totally unpleasant although his attitude to Cyril was hard to accept. One could understand his unfortunate circumstances.
A feel-good film which made it charming and 'sympathique'. Well worth watching. Another success for Dardenne
