Tributes - Retrospectives - Cinema on cinema

Tracking the fortunes of two brothers who get swept up in their club’s success, Belgica is an intense look at the night-life scene. Jo, who’s single, has just opened a club in Ghent: the Belgica. His brother Frank, a family man leading a quiet life, unexpectedly volunteers to help out and even invest in the business. Their venture proves a winner — until the brothers are swept away by their success. Sweeping, turbulent and sensual, with a pounding score, Belgica is an ebullient fresco of Belgian hedonism where every high has its corresponding low.Presented by Frite Alors!
