Belgian directing duo Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (La Promesse, Rosetta, The Son) contribute this social realist thriller about a small-time gang member named Bruno (Jérémie Renier), his teenage wife (Déborah François) and their baby son. One day, icy-veined Bruno casually sells off his kid for a few bucks, setting up the film's tense and unexpected ending. It's probably a bit too gritty and ugly for most viewers, but those Dardenne boys have a real eye for the amoral. In French with English subtitles. 100 minutes R.
