Ironical Destruction
26 February 2004 | by (rijkevorsel, Belgium) – See all my reviews

The film starts off by a story told by Jean-Claude (played by a great Johan Heldenbergh), an amusing invalid with great dreams but with a little mind. The story is about a dispute between a father and a son. An Opel Cadet is the subject of this bizarre story. Throughout the movie this story keeps on coming back. Every character tells it in her/his own way - which is a beautiful character sketch. The explosion of the car opens up to the intro of the, in her own weird way, confident woman called sky (played by Delphine Bafort - who is actually a model).

The movie tells the tale of two people, Steve + Sky, living their marginal life. Steve (Titus Devoogt) is a crook who decides to turn his life around after his time in jail - this doesn't mean he's giving up stealing. He now wants his life to evolve around one person, himself. When Sky falls in love with him, after she had some bad luck with her last boyfriend, he acts as if he doesn't care and he will keep on acting that way, but in the end everyone knows he's in love with her too.

The thing that touched me the most was the ironical destruction. Every character in the movie likes to walk right into some kind of accident: Sky always falls in love with the wrong guys but still she keeps on bashing her head into these relationships; Steve is a crook and will always be a crook even in the worst moments he steals things; Claude has great dreams (Steve also falls for these dreams) and good intentions but he will always end up alone and even Claude's daughter has fatalistic impressions.

The strength of the movie is not the acting (which is quite good), but the directing job is simply astonishing. So much beauty in one movie, so many great situations and point of views and all that created by a simple Belgian director. The greatest moment in the movie for me was without doubt the ending where Steve crashes his motorcycle and ends up somewhere in a bush. Heavily bleeding he's lying there. Behind him there's a building with in big letters on it `GIVE BLOOD'. Magical comedy! This goes for the whole movie. A beauty!
