Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Rosetta, 1999

Members' Screening: Rosetta

31 Aug 2014

Emilie Dequenne plays the title character in this contemporary drama that follows the day-to-day struggles of a tough Belgian teenager as she goes about her chores in a dreary, wintry town.

Unemployed, Rosetta lives in a trailer park with her alcoholic mother (Anne Yernaux). In between caring for her mother, Rosetta is constantly on the move - searching for a job, scavenging for food and selling off clothes to earn a few extra francs. She seemingly has no friends or other relatives until Riquet (Fabrizio Rongione) shows up and assists her in getting a job in a bakery.

Under the direction of Belgian brothers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne, this film was awarded two of the top prizes at the 1999 Cannes film Festival - Best Actress and the Palme d'Or.
