Fermeture de l'usine Renault à Vilvoorde. Third movie of the sexual life of Belgians, this guerrilla documentary carry on whit the demolition of spectacular cinema. Jan Bucquoy makes a series of aesthetic choices that gives him the possibility of making a movie without the classical cinema system. You will not have a photography director, a cast, a 35mm camera, a film, and a film script! Whit his handle DV-CAM, Bucquoy offers to the editing all the expression responsibility and expands the representation in documentation without forgiving the power of his personal artistic expression. In this way this movie is a corrosive political pamphlet, which pulls spectators in the middle of the new economical order's disaster. The shooting down of a factory, another defeat of the international (global) working class, is the occasion to think about the contemporary work system based on the exploitation of human resources. Is it possible to change it? Don't we deserve something else, such as a life and not simply a job? How say NO to the cynicism of the upper class and his top managers? If Michael Moore whit Roger and me (1989) showed that it was necessary to make these questions, Jan Bucquoy try to give an answer. The sexual life of Belgians is a new life in which strikes and sit-in are not enough. A brand new day starts by a consciousness, ridiculous, satisfactory rebellion. Do you desire to know why in the end of the movie workers make a party whir champagne and caviar? Just see this Belgian movie!
