Interesting fiction
19 February 2017 | by brunodirkxSee all my reviews

La Trêve is a true discovery in the list of Belgian fiction. It stands out with its photography, often combined with very good directing, notably in the dream scenes which add to the overall experience. La Trêve contributes to the Belgian tradition of an uncomplicated display of socially unsophisticated villagers, and is at moments humorous. The plot goes along, without excelling. Acting is very good, with a variety of likable and less likable characters. The story is a bit too long, specifically the very beginning and the part before the plot.
