Storyline

Harry arrives in Brussels, meets, and falls in love with tram driver Jeanne. He rents an apartment near the "Manneken Pis" stop, and gets a job in the restaurant "La Croquette Magique". The slightly eccentric concierge of his apartment block, Denise, happens to be Jeanne's best friend, and with her attempts to bring Harry and Jeanne closer together, a game of attraction and repulsion begins that will affect not only their own lives but also the lives of those around them.

true love never dies
12 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

one of the most touching love stories ever to come out of Belgium, Manneken Pis is the touching story of two people who try to life and love their lives despite their background and past. Great actors, beautifully shot, and the feelings of the main characters are brilliantly acted. If you liked 'Amelie Poulain', you should try this little movie. !
