| best foreign picture 2009, go for it, Stijn C!
what a beautiful picture! what a great cast! what a fantastic soundtrack! what a tragic loss! certainly because this world needs songs with lyrics like those of soeur Sourire, here fantastically portrayed by Cecile de France. congratulations Stijn Coninx! I know I keep repeating myself, but this movie is one of the best Belgium has ever made. I can't understand how it was possible to be made, this movie must have cost a lot.

I had no idea this movie was about being gay, so it surprised me. but the peaceful message put me back on the right track: peace and love is the most important thing in the world. yes, I can say this movie has changed my political thoughts completely.

I can't write very well, so I'm going to shut up, but I just want to end with telling how much this picture has got into my heart... no, I can't, you just have to see it for yourself. so bad luck for America, the chances they will see this movie gem are very... hey, wait a minute, let's nominate this with an academy award for best foreign picture 2009!
