Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne: Q&A after screening of “Young Ahmed” at the Palace in Brussels

After its triumph at the Cannes Film Festival, “Le jeune Ahmed” (a.k.a. “Young Ahmed”) is available in theaters. It is the latest film of Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne, the waterproof Belgian screenwriting, directing and producing team with a notable body of work whose reputation as first-rate filmmakers goes way beyond the borders of the European continent, as they have been two giants in contemporary world cinema for over two decades now.

“Young Ahmed” was a strong contender for the Festival’s prestigious Palme d’Or in Cannes, but finally settled with the Best Director Award. After earning the Palme d’Or twice already—with “Rosetta” (1999) and “L’enfant” (2005, a.k.a. “The Child”)—the brothers won the Best Screenplay Award for “Le silence de Lorna” (2008, a.k.a. “The Silence of Lorna” and “Lorna’s Silence”) and the Grand Prix for “Le gamin au vélo” (2011, a.k.a. “The Kid With the Bike”). Cannes has almost become their second home, it seems, as each feature they did since “Rosetta” was nominated for a Palme d’Or.

The film’s leading character Ahmed who lives in a small Belgian town, is a 13-year old radicalized Muslim teen on a deadly mission. Which means that, for the first time, the gifted filmmakers go beyond their usual orbit of white working-class Europeans, but even though they now take a gripping look at religious fundamentalism, their trademark signatures and focus on social realism remain intact. The typical Dardenne’s look and feel is still there, the handheld camera by newcomer DP Benoît Dervaux, who succeeds their regular cameraman Alain Marcoen, is efficient, and in terms of storytelling—well, we’re talking about the Dardenne brothers here. Their momumentum simply doesn’t end.

The other leading characters in the film include Ahmed’s frantic mother Louise (played by Claire Bodson); the local extremist Imam Youssouf (Othmane Moumen); Louise (Victoria Bluck), a teenage girl working on the farm where Ahmed is sent to, and his progressive math teacher (Myriem Akheddiou) who was seen previously in “Le gamin au vélo” (2011) and “Deux jours, une nuit” (2014, a.k.a. “Two Days, One Night”).

On Friday May 24, Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne came over to Cinema Palace in Brussels for a Q&A after a screening of “Young Ahmed,” only to return to Cannes immediately to attend the Festival’s closing ceremony on Saturday.
