Storyline

De Patrick is a family drama about people's peculiarities, about letting go and being happy with who you are: 39-year-old Patrick lives with his parents on a naturist campsite. When his domineering father Rudy dies he finds himself in charge of the campsite, however he has other things on his mind. He has lost his favorite hammer. The long term camp guests want him to get a grip on his life, but he is determined to find his hammer. His search becomes an existential quest. Written by Bart Van Langendonck

User Reviews

the hammer
31 October 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A fresh perspective about life. Familiar to many because the image of father, son and the world after the death of father are not original. Original can be the perspective because, in high measure, the main character is a lost hammer , becoming refuge, symbol, key of events. A film about vulnerability and isolation in yourself. Admirable crafted, beautiful acted.
