Second The Fall

Second Diary of a Country Priest

There is this difference between the growth of some human beings and that of others: in the one case it is a continuous dying, in the other a continuous resurrection. (George MacDonald, The Princess and Curdie)

Isn't narrative structure enough of an ideology for art? (Greg Wright)

Second Two Days, One Night and The Kid with a Bike.

I have to think about the other Dardennes in conjunction with the theme of mercy.

Gleaning is a tradition dependent upon mercy — upon an act that leaves the "leftovers" for the poor to gather for sustenance. This film is about extending that mercy to one another, and realizing that we are all — even in the realm of the imagination — gleaners.

It may not culminate in mercy, but it sure does sharpen the point of the question.
