TIFF 2011: THE KID WITH A BIKE
Though The Kid With A Bike harbors now-familiar Dardenne themes of culpability and consequence, its narrative is delivered with a lighter, less realistic touch, and enhanced by a bright palette, emotionally informed by reds and blues. Cyril's red jacket becomes an indelible image of his frantic pedaling to find a place where he belongs. And the punctuated usage of Beethoven's "Emperor Concerto" suggests the larger spheres of feeling that this small boy is hungry to access.
