The Carriers Are Waiting
Cert: 15 Year: 1999 Length: 93 mins Language: Subtitles
We gladly raise the profile of Belgian cinema (Rosetta is also a candidate for our Festival in February) with this straight-faced, dark comedy. Ambitious reporter Roger (Benoît Poelvoorde, last seen in the UK in Man Bites Dog) obsessively coaches his son Michel to break the world record for opening and closing a door in 24 hours. Never shying away from blacker topics than are normally to be seen in a comedy. Mariage has constructed a beautiful, unsentimental film with unforced surrealist moments worthy of the country that brought us Magritte.
Fine performances... unique and insightful
An underrated gem Jonathan Romney, Sight and Sound
