The Kid with the Bike


France-Belgium-italy | 2011 | 87 mn CAST Cécile de France. Thomas Doret, Jérémie Régniert Cyril, 11 years old, has been left in children's home, for what he has been told is temporary, and sets out to find his father who left him there. He cannot believe his father moved away from their apartment without telling him, and that even his bike is missing. By chance he meets the hairdresser Samantha, who buys his bike back from someone who had it in his possession and claimed he had bought it from the father, and gives it back to Cyril. This fairy-tale like film is a departure from the darker themes usually associated with the Dardenne Borthers and won them the Cannes Film Festival Grand Prix in 2011
