The Belgian filmmaking team of brothers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne (The Kid with a Bike) turned heads with Rosetta, an intense vérité drama that closely follows a poor young woman struggling to hold on to a job to support herself and her alcoholic mother. It’s a swift and simple tale made revelatory by the raw, empathetic way in which the directors render Rosetta’s desperation, keeping the camera nearly perched on her shoulder throughout. Many have copied the Dardennes’ style; few have equaled it. This ferocious film won big at Cannes, earning the Palme d’Or for the filmmakers and the best actress prize for the indomitable Émilie Dequenne (The Girl on the Train).
I don't know if this film is even available in DVD format. It is an odd film - I believe it is French; there are subtitles. Not that there is much dialogue in the movie, anyway. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Sue
