Cyril, almost 12, has only one plan: to find the father who left him temporarily in a children's home. By chance he meets Samantha, who runs a hairdressing salon and agrees to let him stay with her at weekends.  Cyril doesn't recognize the love Samantha feels for him, a love he desperately needs to calm his rage... Written and directed by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, and starring Cécile de France as Samantha and introducing Thomas Doret as Cyril.  This moving film focuses on many things including love, care and a parent-child relationship that does not have to be biological to be real.
