Seeing and Believing 124: The Dardenne Brothers’ The Unknown Girl and Hirokazu Kore-eda’s After the Storm
Wade and Kevin play catch-up this episode, reviewing two foreign releases from earlier in the year. Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s procedural The Unknown Girl, about a young doctor playing detective in order to make up for a serious mistake, is first up. Will this film join the ranks of The Kid with a Bike; Two Days, One Night; and L’Enfant as one of the Dardennes’ finest? The guys then turn their attention to the latest family drama from Hirokazu Kore-eda, After the Storm.
