|Cast:||Jérémie Renier and Olivier Gourmet|
The Belgian brothers Dardenne mine their documentarian past to unfold this viscerally real story about a teen faced with a brutal dilemma: Can he accept his father who smuggles in immigrants and pays them slave wages and also keep a promise made to one of these men? Honest and rife with tension, this deceptively simple film stands out as a gripping portrayal of a fractured conscience.
