Le gamin au vélo aka The kid with a bike (2011)

Cyril is a cute eleven years old boy. He faces a difficult problem as he can't understand the reasons that made his father to abandon him. He now lives in a state-run youth farm but he never stops the attempts to reach him again until one day he finds out where he lives and works. But his father doesn't accepts him. Samantha, a hairdresser who helped him locate his father, invites him to stay with her at the weekends. But Cyril is not the kind of kid that stays around and he soon meets Wes, a punk who convinces Cyril to help him rob a businessman. Cyril will agree as he feels he is totally alone and no one understands and supports him. A dramatic story through the eyes of a lonely boy who lives and breathes on his bike. Great performance from little actor Thomas Doret that made this film won the Grand Prize of the Jury at the Cannes film festival last year.
