29 March 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

On December 31st 1999, the Belgian authorities erect a concrete wall that separate the country in two. On one side, the Flemish, and on the other, the French population. But Albert's «friterie» is cut in half by the famous wall! And worst, Albert wakes up on the wrong side of the wall after in went partying with a beautiful flemish girl. This movie is quite funny and it's interesting to imagine the things that our political leaders will sometime do to solve a problem quickly. The movie was also interesting because I'm French-Canadian and we have, in Canada, the same linguistic problems between the anglophones and the francophones.

7 out of 10.
