The Son


(Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne, 2002).
The story of a carpenter who finds himself teaching his trade to the teenage boy responsible for his own son’s death, is a masterfully rough-hewn piece of work—a spiritual drama as visceral as it is conceptual. Honest craftsmen, the Dardennes construct their set-up for considerable suspense. The Son requires a measure of faith and it repays that trust.
