The Child is a film about growing up. And parenthood is the great catalyst for maturation in this film by Belgian filmmakers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardennes which won the Golden Palm award at the Cannes Film Festival last year.
It is a story of redemption and forgiveness set amongst the harsh realities of the modern world. Its a story about the power of young love. And the magic of parenthood.
