Tori and Lokita: trailer – an unflinching look at the reality of immigrants in Europe

“Tori and Lokita” is a film by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, about two immigrants who are trying to survive in society. The film won the 75th Anniversary Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. The Dardenne brothers won their second Palme d’Or for “Two Days, One Night” in 2014. The film takes a heart-stopping look at the struggles of young and dispossessed people who are living on the margins of society.

Despite the grim circumstances, “Tori and Lokita” is a work of great humanism. The two protagonists are both compelling characters with complex motivations and emotions. The film is shot in a naturalistic style with handheld cameras and long takes, which enhances the feeling of authenticity. The Dardenne brothers are known for their ability to craft realistic portrayals of human suffering and resilience, and “Tori and Lokita” is no exception.

The film has received widespread critical acclaim, with many reviewers praising the Dardenne brothers’ unflinching depiction of poverty and vulnerability. It is a powerful work of social realism that raises important questions about the treatment of immigrants and the structurally disadvantaged. “Tori and Lokital” is an important addition to the Dardenne brothers’ canon of humanist cinema, and a must-see for anyone interested in contemporary European cinema.
