You are viewing a film from our 2023 Festival programme
Tori and Lokita
Saturday 25th February 8:00 PM - Theatre By The Lake
Director:Luc Dardenne Jean-Pierre Dardenne
Cert:15 Year: 2022 Length:88mins
The Dardennes' latest film is set in Belgium, where a young boy and an adolescent girl who have travelled alone from Africa pit their invincible friendship against the cruel conditions of their exile.
It was Mark Kermode's Film of the Week upon its release. In his review he said "While some may baulk at the Dardennes flirting with the thriller genre, …(the two young actors)… keep the film's feet firmly on the ground delivering a hefty emotional punch built in equal measure on empathy, admiration and anguish."
Thanks to Picturehouse Entertainment
“Meticulously controlled, but simmering with a tension that is suffused with fury, this treatise on dignity and depravity, aspiration and apathy is the Dardennes at their most accusatory and damning.”
