About The Kid With A Bike

A Cannes winner about a young boy (Thomas Doret) and his search for a family. Eleven-year-old Cyril's father has temporarily abandoned him in a children's home, leaving no forwarding address. Instead of going to school and waiting for his father to come back, Cyril latches onto Samantha (Cecile de France), a pretty, young hairdresser who he meets by chance. She agrees to foster Cyril at weekends. Despite her maternal fondness for him, Cyril continues to search for his father, believing him to the missing element of stability he needs. Cycling endlessly through his town, Cyril can't come to terms with the fact that his dad doesn't want him. He also attracts the attention of a local drug dealer, who sees Cyril's vulnerability and desire for acceptance as something he can exploit.
