The scenario of this movie is about a very actual issue: the fear of being tracked by a hacker who boycotts our Internet access and our laptop. This is the story of Samuel, who works as a delivery man in Brussels, and his girlfriend Mireille, who is pursuing an internship in New York; their relationship is getting complicated after her departure. Alex Stockman takes us into a world of love and paranoia through a beautiful, and often funny, slice of life in Brussels. As we all have already been confronted with a situation with no way out on our computer, we can really identify ourselves with the characters. This is a movie, with a magnificent soundtrack, which contrasts sharply with Alex Stockman's previous movies. A movie you shouldn't miss.
