HRFF: The Child

Today's HRFF 2010 film was The Child (L'enfant) by Belgian filmmakers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne. It was a powerful and moving story, and I particularly enjoyed Jérémie Renier's performance. I also felt like I was reading a richly narrative book more than watching a typical movieif that makes any sense.

Side note: why are all the Palme d'Or winners so depressing (until their arguably cathartic endings)?
