Antwerp confidential
29 April 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

After LE CAIRE CONFIDENTIAL last year, I just discover this film, not so far from the previous one, if you consider the story, the basic scheme. Not so far.A dark, bleak,gloomy tale speaking a rogue cop, former commissioner of Antwerp anti drug squad and involved with a right wing political party. But other elements are also in matter. Not for all audiences. I recommand it anyway.
