Storyline

This drama depicts the misery of neglected children in big cities. 13 years old Bruno is of a good family, but since the death of his grandmother he spends most of his time alone, in a phantasy world, while his mother is away at work. But then he befriends the violent Jean-Roger, who's from a severely disturbed family, where nobody cares what he's doing. In school Jean-Roger drives their teacher into despair just for fun. To separate the two boys, she starts to stimulate Bruno's interests by giving him extra lessons. When Jean-Roger fears loosing his one and only friend, he becomes even more aggressive.

By turns funny, grotesque, harsh and lyrical.
19 July 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It's been about 5 years since I saw this film, but it was so powerful that many images are still strong in my mind. Ostensibly based around a withdrawn, neglected young boy living with his mother (absent throughout the film) in a French sink estate, De Bruit et de Fureur soon departs from social realism to become something truly unique. It is, by turns, funny, grotesque, harsh and lyrical, and one of the most affecting pieces of cinema I have ever seen.
