Deliciously politically incorrect Belgian comedy
16 March 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Dikkenek is a somewhat chaotic Belgian comedy that more than makes up for the wafer-thin storyline by its deliciously politically incorrect and slightly absurd humor. The movie is carried by the characters: colourful caricatures of some of the archetypes of Belgian society. The acting is outstanding, and the dialogues are often quite simply hilarious.

I am not sure to what extent it is possible to appreciate this movie if you are not a native (or at least excellent) French-speaker (and even if so: having lived in Belgium for at least a while would probably still make a lot of difference).

If you want your movies to make sense, then better to stay away. But if you like the kind of movies that Benoît Poelvoorde has become famous for (C'est arrivé près de chez vous, Les convoyeurs attendent), then you will love this one (even though Poelvoorde does not appear in it himself).

All in all: probably 7/10 for non-Belgians, 8/10 for Belgians, and 9/10 for expatriated Belgians who sometimes miss the characteristic Belgian sense of humor (like myself).
