100% Belgian
5 July 2006 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Though this is a Belgian-French production, Dikkenek is full of "belgitude" (belgianness) from beginning to end, starting from the title, which literally means "big neck" and describes an arrogant person full of him/j herself.

It is somewhat reminiscent of Belgian cult movie "C'est arrivé près de chez vous", because of its dialogues which are likely to become known by everyone.

Full of Belgian cultural references and humor, it might seem absurd to some, especially since the plot is a little chaotic. But Dikkenek gives a merciless picture of Belgian society. It's simply hilarious!

The acting is very good and very spontaneous. It feels real!
