The Great Movies # 3: The Son (2002)

This is in my Top 10 of 2002. If you have 90 minutes to spare, please do take the time to watch this film. It's by the Dardenne Brothers, a filmmaking duo known for their quiet, sparse but often thought-provoking and powerful dramas. This is no exception. It's best to not know anything about this film beforehand because it will heighten the suspense and emotional impact of the ending. All you need to know is that it's about a wood shop instructor who takes on a boy as an apprentice. That's all. Also, have patience with it since the film takes its time to tell its story

This sounds like a really good film to me buddy so I've bookmarked this page for watching it at a later time, thanks for posting this for all of us man.

It's almost odd to see such a more recent film in it's entirety on the 'tubes. Still if it means more people get to see it, then all the better.

I've been watching a lot of movies lately but I don't think this is my type.
