Belgium’s Official Oscar Submission! THE ARDENNES (D'ARDENNEN), 2015, 93 min. The botched robbery that kicks off director Robin Pront’s feature debut drives a wedge between two brothers: Kenny (Kevin Janssens), who is convicted for the crime, and Dave (Jeroen Perceval), who manages to escape. When Kenny is paroled after years in prison, he struggles to adjust to straight life – while Dave struggles to hide his relationship with Kenny’s former girlfriend (Veerle Baetens). The tension escalates steadily from this taut drama’s beginning to its head-turning climax in Belgium's Ardennes Forest. In Flemish and French with English subtitles. Discussion after the feature with director Robin Pront and lead actor Kevin Janssens. Belgian beer reception to follow.
