Film Fest Gent - D'Ardennen

In 'The Ardennes' a brutal home jacking goes hopelessly wrong. Dave, one of the two robbers, manages to run off, leaving his brother Kenneth behind. Four years later, Kenneth is released from prison but a lot has changed over time. Dave has his life back on track and is trying to help Kenneth wher- ever possible, but is witnessing how his highly-strung brother tries to win back his ex-girlfriend Sylvie. 'The Ardennes' is an amazing and a rather unique mix of genre and arthouse cinema. This dark thriller is an uncut Flemish noir, not suita- ble for viewers who can't take a little bloodshed, but highly recommended for anyone who wants to see a purebred filmmaker at work and enjoy the remarkable performances by Veerle Baetens, Kevin Janssens and Jeroen Perceval. Robin Pront: "As a young filmmaker I couldn't imagine a better start for my first feature film. To open Film Fest Gent is the greatest honour you can achieve with your film in Belgium."
