Man, woman, french fries, and a wall.
26 February 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"The Wall" lampoons an old conflict between Belgium's Flemish and French populations with a short and marginally humorous story about the owner of a french fry stand, his love interest, and the government's decision to partition Belgium with a wall which happens to run smack through the middle of our hero's one-man business. A cute little flick, "Le Mur" has all the ear marks of a low budget indie. Nonetheless, it manages a fresh appeal, some fun moments, and keeps itself to conservative one hour run time. Recommended for channel surfers who happen across it but not worth a trip to the video store.
