Directed by brothers Dardenne who were for the third time in their careers awarded best directors at this year's Cannes Film Festival, their eleventh long feature film is a modern story about the radicalization of a young mind, and the theme itself opens the discusiossion about the interpretation of Kur'an by a teenager under its influence.
