The Film makers

Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne are undeniably Belgium’s greatest living cultural export, and some of the world’s finest film makers.
Born in Seraing, a town close to Liege, they are widely appreciated for a signature neo-realist style,
handheld shots, and stories of industrial urban plight whose influence on European cinema sparked countless imitators.
