The year 2011. The world is torn apart by war, violence and other misery. The Nuke has been dropped and the world is a desolate place where chaos and anarchy rules. A grown man with the mind of a child lived all those years locked securely in a bunker and when an automatic time slot suddenly opens he is coming into a world where he knows nothing about. "The Afterman" is soon confronted with violent and perverse survivors. He is, together with an anxious wife, locked up at a local slave driver. However, they can both escape, and slowly but surely, something beautiful blossoms between the two. But is there room for love and happiness (read: sex) in this savage new world? This film is a cult-movie with no dialogue.

Belgian's sexploitation
2 June 2010 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

This is one of those obscure Belgian movies really sought after. For a few reasons people want it, because it is movie without language. No words are used so it is a weird experience to watch it because it isn't an arty farty one like Begotten. Second reason is the so called sexploitation, be aware that it never becomes XXX, it is just that it contains a lot of female nudity, full frontal, pubic hair included you perverts, it is 25 years old! It was never released and illegal copies were almost not available. But Brussels has a film archive and in their vaults lay some hidden treasures. No and then they pop up. Due the Brussels Filmfestival they re released this movie for the first time on DVD. I must say, it's watchable and a bit of blood appears but still it is a low budget. The director was a rebel himself, after an argument with a distributor he for example burnt his movie. No original copies left. He was once in jail and never walked the line. No famous actors were in this flick but it is really the weird things that happen that makes it watchable. For example, a lesbian scene in a swimming pool were the girl going underneath is drown in action. The main actor being released in a destroyed world learns to make love, the monks giving head by visitors, girls on a hook being fed by some weirdo's making love to them, and I can go on and on. Here it is still available for the time being but worldwide it isn't available...a collector indeed.
