A powerfully affecting, uncompromising portrait of the day-to-day struggles of a Belgian teenager living in a trailer park with her alcoholic mother, Rosetta is the Dardenne brothers most celebrated work to date. Lonely, hungry and in constant fear, Rosetta played in gut-wrenching form by Émilie Dequenne leads a hand-to-mouth existence of hardship and pain. But through the strife comes a deep-rooted portrait of bravery and determination, encapsulating as it does the very essence of what it is to be human. This is bold, intelligent filmmaking at its finest.
