  • L'enfant (English Corner)

    L’enfant (English Corner)

    The Dardenne Brothers know Liege and its environs well. They know the life of the working classes and the unemployed. They have been in the territory of L’Enfant before, with their Cannes award-winning Rosetta. It is something of a surprise to see them return there after the powerful complexities of Le Fils.

Ce sont les deux questions en miroir posées par Lars Von Trier dans cette sorte de conte philosophique où il reprend la suite et le dispositif visuel (on pourrait presque dire scènique) de Dogville : un plateau avec un minimum de décors et (...)
