With three billboards along the road requires a woman that the local police are finally making the rape and murder of her daughter. It demands righteousness: #TimesUp. But this film goes beyond hashtags and shows that behind vijandbeelden real people lie, with their own sensitivities and contradictions. The director of ‘In Bruges’ does that with as much nuance as exaggeration, humor, and with all the emotions from anger to regret. This is a masterclass in storytelling and a gripping film about people who have but people. Must-see.

In Brexit-times and export the not so United Kingdom are knuffelbaarste hero: not Noel Gallagher, but the less sinners bear Paddington. The story takes a dark turn, because it caressingly immigrant with brown skin is falsely of theft accused and in prison thrown. Fortunately, he can, like no other, rolls lubricate and syrup to the beard. This film celebrates unabashedly old-fashioned, forgotten values such as optimism and naivety. You want the all the children.

In the empty landscape of the west of China, the muslim Hui. Reviewer Ruben Aerts was under the impression of the austere, poetic style with which this Chinese debut tells the story of a man and his son who are mourning for what is lost irrevocably. To see in Sphinx (Ghent), UGC (Antwerp) and Aventure (Brussels).
