This film reminds me why I used to hate Flemish films so much. The last couple of years we had some good ones thanks to Felix Van Groeningen and others. Those movies were either in West-Flemish or East-Flemish and had very likable characters and great stories. D'Ardennen on the other hand is in sucky Antwerps and is one of those stories with miserable low-life characters. Kevin Janssens (he's annoying as hell), Veerle Baetens and Jeroen Perceval play these 'Johnny and Marina' kinda types which I loathe so it's almost impossible to care for them - let alone stand them. The titular 'Ardennes' are only featured almost an hour into the flick and it only lasts 93 minutes (incl credits). I can't recommend this film at all. I was thinking it would be a cool Flemish take on the cabin horror movies maybe, but it's nothing of the sort. Just skip this crap and watch Belgica, that one was cool and fun!
