The Dardenne brothers with Tori and Lokita in Cannes

Brothers Pierre and Luc DArdenne have already won the Palme d'Or in Cannes twice. Will the Belgians manage the hat-trick this year?

Cannes – Award-winning Belgian directors Pierre and Luc Dardenne aim to challenge power relations in their films.

"What interests us are the weak," said Luc Dardenne on Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival. "Compared to the powerful, it's the lives of the weak that we want to talk about. Those are the characters we want to portray.”

The Dardenne brothers are represented in the competition of the film festival with their film "Tori and Lokita". The work tells of the young migrants Tori and Lokita, who met while fleeing and are now pretending to be siblings in order to enable Lokita (Joely Mbundu) to obtain residence status in Belgium. But the authorities don't recognize this, and Lokita is in danger of having to go back. To earn money, the two work nights as drug couriers. Finally, Lokita agrees to a job that will end disastrously.

The Dardenne brothers have already been represented with many films at Cannes and twice won the main award Golden Palm (“Rosetta”, 1999, and “The Child”, 2005). dpa
