30 September 1999 | Gagut
A lucid view about the depressed Belgium
This movie takes place in the Belgian region of Charleroi, which used to be a wealthy area thanks to the mines and the metallurgy. Right now is the poorest area in Belgium with serious problems of unemployment. To reflect this reality there are two ways in cinema: by doing a crude social movie close to the Ken Loach point of view, or by getting some distance and from there expose a narration that superficially could be funny but undoubtly the bitter taste will remain in the audience. In this way, this movie reflects some characters obsessed in trying to evade themselves from that oppressive environment: a father who wants to beat any of the records included in the Guiness book, a daughter in love with doves, etc. To sum up, in my opinion the spectator will find here a movie to laugh while seeing it and a movie to reflect on after seeing it.
