A Belgian classic
2 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is an absolute gem in Belgium. I don't know if it will totally work for somebody outside of Belgium because it has some typical language and expressions only used by Belgians but for us it is really fun to watch. My wife is American but lived in Belgium for thirteen years and with English subtitles she could easily follow the movie and understood almost all the expressions. But that's because she lived here. Even after all those years Dikkenek came out in the theaters a lot of my friends still use some of the classic phrases out of Dikkenek, and almost everybody immediately knows it's from the movie. François Damiens better known as François l'Embrouille with his sketches on Youtube proves again he is a really good comedian. His mimics can only be done by him. Jean-Luc Couchard plays also a very good role in Dikkenek, with his typical arrogant know-it-all bully character from Brussels. To me those two are the absolute top in Dikkenek. The rest of the cast is also good so there is not much bad to say about this movie. Maybe the story is a bit simple, but it is supposed to be a parody on the typical characters from Brussels so the story doesn't really matter. I could watch this movie over and over again, it always makes me laugh.
