I already saw this movie 2 times and I'm planning to see it another time.
Although the story in itself is very simple (a love story), the screenplay is great and very unpredictable.
Great acting by Johan Heldenberg (or something like that) who plays Jean-Claude, a beautiful real Steve portraited by Titus Devoogt and a mystical Sky, played by Delfine -i don't know her last name.
Direction is beautiful, with great editing (flashbacks-flashforwards), stunning cinematography (it's shot on 16mm and blown up to 35mm). There is no thing about it that I don't like, from the music to the beautiful images to it's great ending (not an usual ending as mostly with love stories). Complements to Felix van Groeningen who delivers here a fantastic debut
The movie is full of great scenes, with some very funny dialogues and some very touching moments ('Dromen zijn Bedrog'-scene is wonderful).
It's like you are in trance for 100 minutes... Great movie
