Sorry, I forgot...
8 March 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

After my first comment, I just realized that this film is categorized as an al audiences feature. HELL NO !!!! Not for all audiences. That's an outstanding, poignant, disturbing film that maybe can make many folks puke all over the joint, cry, leave the room or swith the TV set off. I LOVE this feature, from all my guts. The main character is so moving, that the most ruthless and cold blooded human being can not stay freeze before his performance. Something here reminded me C'EST ARRIVE PRES DE CHEZ VOUS or BORGMAN. I am sure this feature is blood related with Belgium. I will check rightaway. Benoit Pooelvoorde or Benoit Delepine are not so far minded from this little gem, if not masterpiece.
