Storyline

Writer Joris (the author's alter-ego) has packed in his job and left his routine. He wanders through Brussels, pretending to be in other places and as far as we can verify lying to everyone. He stays in a dead-beat motel and meets other absurd people, never to any actual end. Will it be different when he meets Luzie and falls in love? Written by KGF Vissers

And then suddenly nothing happened
19 July 2009 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

An art-house loner walking around and meeting people isn't exactly a plot that raises the blood pressure, but the dreamy atmosphere of the nostalgic black and white footage is bound to leave at least some impression. What struck me about this movie was how oddly realistic the dialogues were, as if they were improvised on the spot. These aren't movie characters, these are random people talking about everyday things. I quite respect how the occasional emptiness of life is captured here. However, this movie has an Achilles heel, and a quite significant one at that: it's boring. For every intriguing scene, there are two incredibly boring ones, which makes sitting through this pretty difficult. It didn't take long before I got sick of it all, but I kept watching for the conclusion, which is actually pretty great. Very appropriate considering the overall style of the movie. This movie makes me think, but I often think it's boring.
