Adil El Arbi,
The 7 part black dramedy follows the comical exploits of four gigolos, the Callboys, while testosterone-driven management, petty arguments and deaf-mute ambition make their short-lived business crash and burn.
Coming out of the woodwork to write my first review on here, for a local movie. I am from Belgium but I rarely watch Belgian films. When I do, I rarely like them. But this is an exception. This film, in my opinion is exceptional, at least for Belgian cinema.
It's a critical piece about the way people from Maghreb countries are represented in Belgian media. The first scene pulls you in and never lets go. It is enthralling, moving and sometimes painful to watch. This film makes a point, an important point. It doesn't make it subtly, but clearly and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I hope people get to view it and leave the cinema with their thoughts provoked and eyes opened.
