Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne

Two-time winners of the Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne are two of the most acclaimed and deeply admired filmmakers at work today. Their deliberate, naturalistic movies slowly constrict as they follow seemingly ordinary characters who live on the edges of society. With no music and no-frills, affectless photography and production design, their films, like The Son (2002) and The Child (2005), proceed quietly with slow-burning suspense as characters confront moral predicaments much more complex than they first appear.
