    (Belgium) Bullhead (2011)



    This was Belgium's official submission to the Best Foreign Language Film category of the 84th Academy Awards 2012 and having seen the film I see why they submitted it.

    A young Limburg cattle farmer named Jacky Vanmarsenille is approached by an unscrupulous veterinarian to make a shady deal with a notorious West-Flemish beef trader. But the assassination of a federal policeman, and an unexpected confrontation with a mysterious secret from Jacky's past, set in motion a chain of events with dire consequences. BULLHEAD is an exciting tragedy about fate, lost innocence and friendship, about crime and punishment, but also about conflicting desires and the irreversibility of a man's destiny.
    This is a dark really slow-moving character driven film. We follow a very flawed individual who was hurt both emotionally and physically as a child, which turned him into what he is today. Although I felt they could've trimmed about 20-mins or so from the running time, it's still one of the better character study pics I've seen in a while. Worth a look if you're into slow and moody character driven dramas. 7/10

    I've heard so many good things about this movie, and I always end up putting off for one reason or another, but finally got it, I'll be watching in these days.
