The gazer of THE WAITING ROOM is on the road this time!
Gene Bervoets, the amorous gazer in Jos Stelling's THE WAITING ROOM is back in THE GAS STATION - and he has the characterization spot on. This film opens out a bit from the earlier one and you're a lot less sure what just might happen next - but I don't think you'll be disappointed! Perhaps one of the most non-PC characters you'll see on celluloid (I'm not sure how much Political Correctness exists in Europe, though).
