In French with English subtitles
Dispossessed twenty-year old Bruno (Jérémie Renier) lives with his eighteen-year-old girlfriend Sonia (Déborah François) in Seraing, an eastern Belgian steel town. They live off Sonia’s unemployment benefits and the panhandling and petty theft committed by Bruno and his gang. Their lives change forever when Sonia gives birth to their child, Jimmy. She returns home after Jimmy’s birth to find that Bruno has sublet their apartment to total strangers. After an initial and promising change of heart about becoming a father and changing his ways, Jimmy becomes little more to Bruno than a new source of wealth. Desperate for money and unable to face his parental responsibilities, Bruno sells Jimmy to a black market connection, who promises to find the child an adoptive home. Realizing the error in his actions Bruno sets out to try and undo his callous deed, leading him to a powerful personal transformation.
ROSETTA, 1999, Jean-Pierre And Luc Dardenne, 93 Minutes, Wild Bunch, Belgium
Every day, Rosetta fights for the job that she finds, loses, finds again – the job that is taken away from her and that she takes back – obsessed by the fear of disappearing, by the shame of not belonging. Rosetta wants a normal life, with others, among others.
