In a case of babies having babies, an emotionally stunted hustler sells his newborn for a quick euro — and pays dearly for redemption. The Palme d’Or winner from Belgian writer-directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne is disturbingly quiet (the silence punctuated by terse dialogue and chirping phones), yet the brothers’ voice rings out. EXTRAS In a weighty interview, they describe L’Enfant’s conception (while filming 2003’s Le Fils, they spotted a teen violently pushing a pram) and the task of wrangling 40 infants over 12 weeks.
