pretty much perfect -- dog part unfunny
16 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man who imports used American cars to Belgium catches a young burglar who he begrudgingly befriends...we find out later that he had recently lost his younger brother to drugs and feels some rapport.

This movie is hard to rate...if it hadn't gone on so long it would have gotten a 10---but the last 30 minutes are kind of out of gas.

Let me say one thing about the dog scene...it took a lot of daring for the director to do this. However, animal cruelty no matter how it is twisted in unfunny.

The essence of this kind of movie is bizarreness turned into comedy. If you find the idea of importing used American cars amusing you will understand this movie. I love these things and this one was done well. Except as I mentioned the dog scene.

The movie used digital techniques for the sky and other scenery but it was beautiful anyway. Computers mean some really beautiful landscapes.

In the end? Very good especially the nudist scene and others. Mentally sublimate if you can the dog part because the rest of it is really spot on.
