Bringing the good news from Gent

user
Any autumn, the rendez-vous now most congenial for cineaste and cinephile just has to be Gent, the lovely Belgian medieval metropolis where the 35th International Film Festival of Flanders was celebrated in splendid style from 7th to 18th October, 2008. With gastronomic delights to rival those of Brussels (and not just chocs, chips and beers), Gent has the bustle and efficiency of the Flemish (think Swiss, with a sense of humour). In the centuries before Shakespeare was scripting,Gent was larger...

In Bruges review

user
The closing film of the Titanic Festival in Budpest, "In Bruges", was another eye-opener. Directed by Martin McDonagh and set almost entirely in the beautiful Belgian canal city of Bruges, this is one where it's hard to tell whether it's a violent comedy, or a spoof on violence, or a comical violence film about two hard-boiled Irish hit men on the lam in Belgium. Our hero, handsome Irish charmer Colin Farrell, sporting a heavy growth of five-o'clock shadow throughout and constantly lamenting th...
