THE BIRDMAN OF BELGIUM
9 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is the real story of Frans Van Reeth, a small time crook who spent most of his life in jail. In and hour and a half we learn all about the love of his life, his inmates, his adventures in and out of prison and the way he ends. I saw this film 8 times. Not because of the storyline, but because of the music. Good soundtrack, bad performance of Daeseleire as Van Reeth but still entertaining. two out of five.
