Flemish Film: Moscow-Belgium

Join our Flemish night on Wednesday 28 September!

We will start the night with the comedy Moscow, Belgium (Dutch/Flemish: Aanrijding in Moscou).
Director: Christophe van Rompaey

Moscow, Belgium is a dramatic comedy about a woman whose soul is full of dents and bruises. Embittered postwoman Matty is facing the start of a middle-age crisis, her husband has abandoned her for a younger woman, leaving her with three pubertal children. When she meets truck driver Johnny, ten years her junior, it takes a while before she responds to his evident interest in her. Gradually Matty and Johnny get together, much to the dismay of her adolescent daughter and husband, now back on the scene. This romantic but not slushy film follows its charismatic heroine on a journey towards happiness and late romance. The story unfolds in Moscow, a working-class neighbourhood of Ghent. This is a gently humoured tale of mismatched love between a 40-year-old postwoman and a 30-year-old truck driver, told in a civil, realistic style. The superb performances and outstanding dialogues underscore the genuine appeal and engaging credibility of the film.

Stay for the next movie Belgica, which a a beautiful drama that follows two brothers who start a bar and get swept up in its success in the midst of Belgium’s nightlife scene.

We have a special offer of £15 (standard) or £10 (student) for those that would like to attend both films on our Flemish night.
