“Guileless performances, understated direction and bucolic Belgian scenery combine to create a quiet gem of a film.”~Neil Smith, Total Film

Aroview: Another closely-observed Belgian drama that, along with "Playground", explores a traumatic rite-of-passage. Here the protagonists are adolescents who share an intense friendship, but one that is cut short before it might have developed into anything more. Dir. Lukas Dhont made a splash with the trans drama "Girl" (2018) and here casts a similarly delicate and compassionate queer-eye over this semi-autobiographical one, a co-winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes in 2022.
