My whole life I've known nothing but animals... I've always felt just like these bulls here, never knowing what it's like to protect someone. Calves, a herd, like a wife, children... Really having to protect them, cos you have to... cos it's in your nature.
I haven't got what I'm supposed to have.

More than a movie, a masterpiece, a work of art....!!
You do not have to be Belgian to appreciate and be an admirer of this movie. The way it is told, filmed and performed are Oscar worthy....
This the incredibly sad story of Jacky, a farmer who's whole life will be turned upside down following a dramatic and traumatising event in his youth....making him the man (or what's left of it) he is today!
It handles in a very realistic way the animal (cow-bull) drug and hormone maffia and its traffic. Following the lives of several people who are directly affected by it.
The two stories, one the telling of Jacky's way to deal with his trauma and how he suffers from it, how it affected him and the other about the hormone traffic are brilliantly melt together to a story that will leave no one insensitive!!
