Qwerty Norris -> Another very fine Dardennes effort. (2/4/2012 4:39:23 PM)

Once again a fairly innocuous title results in an absolute riveting piece by the Dardenne Brothers that’s up there with their very best. Despite containing a couple of plot incidents that don’t quite ring true compared to the rest of the scenes (the introduction of Cecile de France, “it’s him or me”), TKWAB is compensated by an incredibly authentic performance from the young lad who leads the film brilliantly – evoking fury, vulnerability & believability in every moment he inhabits the screen (which is virtually every scene). The comparisons with Kes are certainly valid, yet TKWAB offers more optimism than Loach’s piece (signified by the transformation in Doret’s character which is beautifully handled) and is far more cinematic. A favourite from the 2011 festival circuit can now be considered as one the best releases of 2012.
