An Exclusive Clip From the Dardennes’ The Kid with a Bike


IFC Films has provided with an exclusive clip from Belgian filmmakers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne’s The Kid with a Bike, which is out in New York and L.A. on Friday, March 16.

The Dardennes are considered one of Belgium’s finest cinematic exports with their previous films L’Enfant (The Child) and Rosetta, both winning the Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. The Kid with a Bike won a Jury Prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for a Golden Globe in the Foreign Language Film category.

It follows the story of 11-year-old Cyril, played by Thomas Doret, whose father (Jérémie Renier) abandoned him earlier and when his prized bicycle goes missing, he enlists the help of a hairdresser (Cecile de France) who becomes determined to help him get his bike back, and in the exclusive clip below, you can watch a scene where de France’s character confronts Renier about his irresponsibility for his son.

The Kid with a Bike opens in New York and L.A. on Friday, March 16.
