Jean Pierre & Luc Dardenne

Scriptwriters and Film-makers

Jean Pierre was born in 1951 in Engis and his brother Luc in 1954 in Avirs. They grew up in Seraing, an industrial suburb of Liège. Through their militant and realist films: Je pense à vous (1992), La Promesse (1996), Rosetta (1999), Le Fils (2002) and L’Enfant (2005) they have developed not only their unique cinematic style, but also a campaigning “social cinema” which been compared with the work of their English contemporaries Ken Loach and Mike Leigh.
