In one of their best films, the Dardenne brothers bringforth a powerful, social-realistic cry for humanity and humanism. In Belgium today, a young boy and anadolescent girl who have travelled alone from Africapit their invincible friendship against the difficult conditions of their exile.

Lokita is trying to satisfy the authorities that yes, she tracked down her eight-year-old younger brother Tori in a West African orphanage and recognized him—despite not having seen him since he was a baby—and her anxiety ispalpable. She’s not a convincing witness. And indeed, Tori is not a blood relation; the pair met up on their grueling odyssey across Europe. But their bond runs deeper than mere opportunism. In a hostile and dangerous environment, they offer one another unstinting love and support.

Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne won 75th Anniversary Prize at the Cannes IFF 2022 for this film. IMDb trailer
