The sun can be found behind the most menacing clouds
Suicidal teens, depressed mothers, manic ladies, the gap between rich and poor, the global warming, the destruction of the world in general: the Belgian film Vincent has all the dark themes. Screenwriter-producer Jean-Claude Van Rijckeghem, has in his life and career made a point to find the sun behind the most menacing clouds. He makes no exception this time. 'Vincent' seeks a balance between emotional drama and humor jolly. the first gets remarkably well done, thanks to a rich narrative pace and certainly a strong group of actors. Protagonist Spencer Bogaert confirms his talent, Geert Van Rampelberg gives color to the one-dimensional Raf and Barbara Sarafian was as mother Marianne perfect. The nonsense that everything must be put into perspective however, affects less goal. And so 'Vincent' unfolds in the film he at the end of the ride actually always wanted to be: entertaining and smooth, but also harmless and perfect 'middle of the road'.
