Storyline

Shoemaker Tuur is celebrating his wedding jubilee with his wife Emma. Although the whole family and village is happy to celebrate with them, Tuur doesn't feel like celebrating. The next morning after the party Emma finds out that Tuur has left. It soon turns out Tuur is at his sister Josées house. His other sister Gerda is mad when she finds out he's with Josée. The two sisters don't get along at all, but Emma refuses to go and get Tuur. So Tuur ends up staying with his sister and her singing girlfriend Odette. Written by Anonymous

One of the last Flemish movies on real Flemish subjects
16 November 2004 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

No doubt about it, Lieven Debrauwer is on of the last Flemish directors (and because he is still 'young', perhaps the last one) that makes movies about conservative (even traditional) Flemish social behavior. That kind of (sometimes narrow-minded) behavior that is typical of elder generations in Flanders. Those generations are fading away (they get old, so eventually pass away), that explains the subject of the movie: a man is fed up with his simple life at home, his wife and his commanding sick sister. He wants to break out of his conservative miserable life and get on to something new. He goes to his sister who has a night club (refers to indecent behavior, so the sister isn't accepted in the family) in the 'city'. There is a cultural change.

I like this kind of movie because it's rather funny to see how the elder (in this movie, who reflect also those in Flanders) still have that sense of standards and values, sometimes that gives ironic situations, but it's especially very honest and true...
