The Secret of the Grain (2007), Abdellatif Kechiche ★★★★★

One big happy family. The father is separated or divorced from the mother, who’s children protect their brother against his wife, their sister in law, and the father’s girlfriend and her daughter, and his dream which the girlfriend’s daughter is the driving force forging him ahead. From the opening scene, it’s like you’re watching a Dardenne brothers’ film. Another Big Night, so to speak. And I thought the dance in Jean Renoir’s The River was the be all end all.
