Details

The Dardenne Brothers are the most celebrated and decorated filmmaking partners in the world, boasting five Cannes wins and countless other international prizes.
Their unique form of morally rigorous, emotionally engrossing and sparsely stylized cinema has won over audiences across the world and their bold and often deeply unsettling yet fundamentally life-affirming, humanistic work has moved the hearts of many.

Now, for the first time, their greatest works are available together in this collector's edition box set.

The Child (2005)
