Storyline

On a campsite at the Belgian coast, the delegate of the Ministry of culture Jan Bucquoy must bring culture nearer to the working class. But the residents of this caravan park prefer to look at soccer, a boxing-match or a beauty-contest. They are not interested in an interview with the famous writer Pierre Mertens. As they are far from home they also want to have some sexual adventures or start a love-affair. The campsite is also the place where everybody wants to live in complete freedom and forget the obligations of everyday-life. Written by revofog

Trivia

Ten lifesize dolls of Lolo Ferrari were made in five different colors and were put at the entrances of theatres. Eight of the dolls were sold to friends and the two remaining are still in hands of the producer. They are in his living room because they caused too much trouble in the office. See more »

Crazy Credits

End credits are intercut with shots of one of the characters singing a song on a stage, then by the text "Les pauvres rêvent, les riches dorment. 1 septembre" (The poor dream, the rich sleep), and finally by a shot of Camping Cosmos deserted and covered in snow, with the words "Fin de la deuxième partie de la Vie Sexuelle des Belges." (The end of the second part of the Sexual Life of the Belgians.) See more »

Extravagant people on a Belgian caravan park.
17 May 2002 | by stevenlemahieuSee all my reviews

This movie is a surrealistic description of a colony of holiday-makers on a camping site at the Belgian beach. They all have one thing in common: they just want to do nothing or have sex. They all develop different attitudes because they think that they feel free far from home. So you see them in a relax way. Miss Vandeputte (Lolo Ferrari) is constantly looking after a new lover. The director of the art-festival at the beach is confronted with the blames of his daughter who claims he is loosing his time with the people of the camping site who never show up for one of his attractions be it a play of Bertold Brecht or an interview with the writer Pierre Mertens (Noël Godin). The residents of the caravan park are only interested in looking at a boxing-match or a beauty-contest. I liked this movie because it shows in a funny way the difference between people when they go on holiday.
