From two-time Palme dOr winning duo Jean-Pierre and Luk Dardenne comes The Kid with a Bike, a realistic and touching human drama about growing up.

After being abandoned by his father, 11 year-old Cyril has gone to live in state care. One day, in the hope of finding his wayward father, Cyril escapes, seeking refuge from the school authorities in a doctors surgery, where he meets the kind and loving Samantha. Samantha agrees to Cyril spending the weekends at her place and in spite of the boys self-destructive rage, the two lonely souls slowly start to develop a special bond.

    Comments about The Kid with a Bike:

    Another in a long line of good movies from the Dardenne brothers which won the European Film Award for 2011. The cast, including Cécile de France, is excellent.
    The movie is about 11yo Cyril, who escapes from a childrens' home to find and live with his father. He finds him, but events don't turn out as Cyril expects.
    The movie is rated M which is a pity; there's nothing here to warrant it in my opinion. Cyril has to cope with a few awkward situations but emerges the stronger for them.
