Tributes - Retrospectives - Cinema on cinema
| 108 minutes | 2009
A writer looks back on his misspent youth in a crazy, freewheeling epic by turns hilarious and cynical. Born into arguably the worst family in Flanders, Gunther Strobbe, 13, and his father and uncles live with his grandmother, who’s a saint. Now an adult and a writer, Gunther looks back on the steady stream of binge drinking, babes and battles. Adapted from Dimitri Verhulst’s autobiographical novel and a winner at the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, this ode to freewheeling bad behaviour brims with jubilantly punk spirit.
