Jean-Luc and Pierre Dardenne are Cannes Film Festival veterans and favorites. Ever since “Rosetta” took the Palme d’Or in 1999, all their films have not only played in competition at Cannes, they’ve also won prizes—they have two Palmes d’Or, one Ecumenical and one screenplay prize from the festival -- not too shabby. Well, they’re back on the Croisette this year with "The Kid With The Bike" and if these clips are anything to go by, it looks like they might have another prize-winner on their hands.

Jean-Luc and Pierre Dardenne are Cannes Film Festival veterans and favorites. Ever since “Rosetta” took the Palme d’Or in 1999, all their films have not only played in competition at Cannes, they’ve also won prizes—they have two Palmes d’Or, one Ecumenical and one screenplay prize from the festival -- not too shabby. Well, they’re back on the Croisette this year with "The Kid With The Bike" and if these clips are anything to go by, it looks like they might have another prize-winner on their hands.

Starring Cécile De France (Clint Eastwood's "Hereafter"), Thomas Doret, Jérémie Renier and Fabrizio Rongione the film centers on a young boy battling his rage after his father abandons him in a children’s home, and the relationship he develops with a hair salon owner who cares for him on the weekends. While the clips find the Dardennes not messing too much with their usual formula, it's hard to quibble when the results look this strong. Both De France and Doret look like they're knocking their respective roles as the salon owner and the young Cyril out of the park, so we're getting ready to have our hearts once again ripped out by the Gallic directing duo.

Watch the clips below and check out a bunch of new stills from the picture. The film opens in France on May 18th. No word yet on when it might land on U.S. shores.
