A Brief Lesson in Looking Closer: From the Dardennes Brothers and Doug Cummings

The Dardennes brothers have made some of my favorite films of the past decade — L’Enfant, The Son, and Rosetta — and now they have a new three-minute short.

Thanks so much to Doug Cummings for the link. And then for thinking it through with us. Folks, watch the video (with the volume turned up) before you read the commentary.

Teachers, you could inspire your students by showing this and challenging them with questions about it. Something as simple as this exercise could open up a whole new chapter in their engagement with art.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has relaunched a bigger, better version of this blog at LookingCloser.org. The new Looking Closer doesn't have any of the trashy click-bait advertisements that you're probably seeing all over this Patheos page. So give yourself a break.

    Brilliant short. I can’t wait to see what the other 32 directors come up with. To Each His Cinema promises to be one of the most diverse viewing experiences of the decade, if not the century!
