Touching in a sad and yet very funny way, 29 March 2007
Author: hannesddw from de haan, belgium

Everybody who went to college and had good friends there, or spent lots of careless time with wild and young companions, will be deeply affected by this film. Dagen Zonder Lief shows us in a glowing, slow burning way what we all know: nothing lasts forever, not even friendship. The wonderful characters in Dagen Zonder Lief were young together and had loads of fun, as the subtle flashbacks show us, but those days are over. One is married and has a little baby; another one left for New York; yet another one is about to enter the snobbish world of his snobbish girlfriend. There's still a spark when they meet, but that's it: just a spark. Not the burning fire of the old days. The suicide of one or their common friends and the inexplicable need to settle prevents them from truly reliving the old days. They hardly ever mention it, but you can see it in their every movement and expression.

The acting is wonderful, the music subtle and sentiment non existing. Dagen Zonder Lief is without a doubt the best Belgian movie since Iedereen Beroemd (2000)
