Brother for Sale, 25 Cents.

Going to the video store these days is like going to the bookstore to buy a novel. When you don't know what you want, its a hell zone.

Luckily, when I do see a movie I want to rent, I write it down so issues like this are minimal. So, tonights movie of choice, after some extensive research and no Shadow of a Doubt available, was L'enfant directed by Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne.

This is the story of a couple who just had a baby. The boyfriend however, decides it would be better just to sell the baby and make a quick dollar, or euro in this case, then keep it. I thought the movie was really good. It was striking how easily this guy could do the things he did just to make some money. Its a bit slow, but deep and intriguing. I don't recommend it if you have a big group of friends over or arent in the mood to be deeply moved. But if you want to sit back, relax, and enjoy a good movie, this is for you.
