Sint-Truiden, Belgium. The young Limburg cattle farmer Jacky Vanmarsenille (Matthias Schoenaerts), is approached by an unscrupulous veterinarian to make a shady deal with a notorious West-Flemish beef trader. But the assassination of a federal policeman, and an unexpected confrontation with a mysterious secret from Jacky's past, set in motion a chain of events with far-reaching consequences. BULLHEAD is an exciting tragedy about fate, lost innocence and friendship, about crime and punishment, but also about conflicting desires and the irreversibility of a man's destiny. Written by
I'm very critical, i almost never give out scores above 8. this movie is based on true events, superb performance of lead character; well done, in a realistic way such as only European movies can (as in contrast to American movies) whether you are from Belgium or not, its a good movie.
it depicts a look in the Belgian hormone mafia scene, around the the time when they murdered a federal veterinary inspector.
beware, there are shocking scenes in the movie. and i do mean shocking, not your everyday kind of scenes.
especially if you understand dutch or have some knowledge of the Low Countries.
