BELGIUM, France | 98 minutes | 2019

A friendless boy meets a new patient at the psychiatric institute where his mother works. Smitten with the girl, he helps her escape from the adult world. The Belgian director completes his Ardennes trilogy, begun in 2004 with Calvaire, which has since ascended to the status of cult film. Like a latter-day Bonnie and Clyde, this frenzied, deeply sensual fugitive story ricochets from pure joy to unpredictable nightmare twists. With Adoration, Du Welz goes deeper into his exploration of uncompromising love, and the perils of abandoning yourself to it.
