As the first viewer to comment on this film from the United States, let me say I found this film highly entertaining. I apologise for my ignorance on French-Flemish relations in Belgium, but having viewed "Hop" without that baggage (but with subtitles), I can report that the film is beautifully acted and photographed. Lead Kalomba Mboyi is an instant star playing the resourceful and understatedly brilliant Justin. Strong pacing, surprises, and even suspense punctuate a story that proceeds from the mundane to the almost unbelievable. I did not recognize this as an overtly political film, but as smooth entertainment. My fellow Americans will probably enjoy "Hop" more than the Belgian commentators seem to have.
