Storyline

On a campsite at the Belgian coast, the delegate of the Ministry of culture Jan Bucquoy must bring culture nearer to the working class. But the residents of this caravan park prefer to look at soccer, a boxing-match or a beauty-contest. They are not interested in an interview with the famous writer Pierre Mertens. As they are far from home they also want to have some sexual adventures or start a love-affair. The campsite is also the place where everybody wants to live in complete freedom and forget the obligations of everyday-life. Written by revofog

Trivia

Ten lifesize dolls of Lolo Ferrari were made in five different colors and were put at the entrances of theatres. Eight of the dolls were sold to friends and the two remaining are still in hands of the producer. They are in his living room because they caused too much trouble in the office. See more »

Crazy Credits

End credits are intercut with shots of one of the characters singing a song on a stage, then by the text "Les pauvres rêvent, les riches dorment. 1 septembre" (The poor dream, the rich sleep), and finally by a shot of Camping Cosmos deserted and covered in snow, with the words "Fin de la deuxième partie de la Vie Sexuelle des Belges." (The end of the second part of the Sexual Life of the Belgians.) See more »

Love and death on a Belgian beach.
19 February 2002 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

The story tells us the relation between a father who works as a cultural entertainer in a camping and his daughter who comes back after she was kidnaped, and the adventures of the habitants of the camping who all have a peculiar sex-life. The woman of the camping owner, miss Vandeputte (Lolo Ferrari), wants to be loved and she tries to start a relationship with some guys of the camping: the radio-operator, the postman, a man disguised as the hero of the comics "Tintin". Nobody is interested in an life-interview with a famous writer. The entertainer wants to attract people to a boxing-match, a song contest, a beauty contest, but this is not what the ministry of culture wants. He finds happiness with his daughter who supports him. The story ends bad for miss Vandeputte: Lolo is wrapped by her husband like a mummy and thrown into the sea. The camping is visited by the police and everybody leaves the camping in a feeling of despair. I liked the movie because it shows something about my country, but it is universal and people from other countries will also recognize people of their own country in this movie.
