The Son

From Frenchy auteurs the Dardenne brothers (La Promesse, Rosetta) comes another bleak but brilliant film. The deceptively simple allegory focuses on Oliver (Oliver Gourmet), a wood shop teacher who serves as a tutor for troubled young boys. One day, he takes on a new pupil, with whom he seems to have a curious fascination. Who is this young lad and what connectoin does he share with Oliver? The realistic, almost mundane "Dogma 95"-style of the film will undoubtedly bore many moviegoers, but those with patience will be rewarded by an ultimately searing character study bathed in sin and redemption. In French with English subtitles. 103 minutes
