A really good Belgian film is hard to find, but this one is worth the search. I guess you have to be Flemish to really appreciate it(even the accents are funny!), but this film is so funny and yet tragic in a certain way that it should appeal to many viewers. The leads, Stany Crets and Peter van den Begin, make a wonderful couple. And I honestly don't think that there ever were any bigger losers in the history of cinema than these two guys.
It's all very believable, with great character development and subtlety too, at times. I was surprised by this, since director Jan Verheyen often makes amusing, but not so good(nor subtle) films. This one is certainly his best film yet. But, then again, it's based on a book by Tom Lanoye, who is one of the best Belgian writers alive. 8/10
