cow boy : a different Poelvoorde
28 January 2009 | by alain-frynsSee all my reviews

Having seen "Cow-boy" several month ago, the cinema ticket is still in my pocket and will stay there as long as the paper resists. For those anxious to see Benoît Poelvoorde in a much more subtle play, this is the movie to watch ! In this true story, he makes tons of stuff to be recognized to finally see that he falls away of all his deepest feelings; I was so exited after the projection that I wrote to the director to explain my enthusiasm and, a few months later, I played a character in one of his student s'movie ! Unfortunately, the film didn't had much success but nevertheless, no doubt that work is to be taken among one of the best of the cinema.
