Our Struggles (Nos batailles)
Saturday, May 4, 2:00 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater
New York premiere
Presented by Wallonie Bruxelles International (WBI)
Belgium/France. Dir. Guillaume Senez. 2018, 98 mins. DCP. With Romain Duris, Laure Calamy, Laetitia Dosch. Guillaume Senez confirms himself as one of Europe’s most deeply humanist directors, working in a lower-key vein than his compatriots, the Dardenne brothers. Following his acclaimed debut Keeper (about a teen boy whose soccer dreams are disrupted when his girlfriend gets pregnant), Our Struggles dramatizes the struggles of a factory manager and labor activist whose wife unexpectedly leaves him, forcing him to care for their two children. Romain Duris, one of Europe’s most magnetic actors (The Beat That My Heart Skipped, All The Money in the World), is compelling as a decent but overwhelmed man dealing with the challenges the contemporary world throws him.
