The Kid With a Bike

Sound & Vision Magazine
19 June 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s about an 11-year-old at a state-run boys’ home—a violence-prone ball of energy—who learns his father hasn’t merely dropped him off but abandoned him and sold his precious bike besides. He runs away, sneaks into his old apartment building for signs of any good news, gets chased into a doctor’s office, where he smacks into a woman in the waiting room, and clutches her for dear life, a woman who eventually comes to adopt him, almost as an act of fate, if not faith.

  • Conclusion: I won't blame you if, while watching 'The Kid with a Bike', you feel like you want to throttle young Cyril. It seems predestined that a person like Samantha is out there. Her endless patience and selflessness are beautifully affecting. One of the most likeable movie characters in recent memory. Criterion junkies will no doubt buy this title regardless, however, for everyone else, 'The Kid with a Bike' is strongly recommended.

The Kid With a Bike (2011)

  • Conclusion: I thought that Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's The Kid With a Bike was one of the very best films to be released on Blu-ray in 2012. It is fantastic to see that it is now also available in the United States. Criterion's release also comes with excellent exclusive supplemental features, including a lengthy video interview with the Belgian directors conducted by Kent Jones. Do not miss this release, folks. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Did you find this review helpful?

The Kid With A Bike (2011)

  • Conclusion: The Kid With a Bike is a simple yet profoundly moving film by two of European cinema's best directors. So far this year, it is one of the very best films I've seen released on Blu-ray. Hopefully, a U.S. Blu-ray release isn't too far behind. As usual, Artificial Eye's technical presentation is of exceptionally high quality. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Did you find this review helpful?

The Kid With A Bike

AV Club
15 March 2012
  • Excerpt: In the films of Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne , the characters move restlessly within fences and walls both real and imagined, often bumping hard against the limits that confine them. They are creatures of need, lonely and deeply vulnerable, but with an almost-feral determination to survive and hold on to the minimal things that constitute their lives.

  • Summary: A moving, sweet and at times harrowing tale about an abandoned boy, this is also a chilling insight into the psychological roots of crime. Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, famous for their naturalistic style, won the 2011 Cannes Film Festival Grand Prix and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. More And yet it almost doesn’t feel like a film. It’s more a snapshot of life than a story carefully moulded for entertainment value.
