  • Trilogy - One / Two / Three [2002]Trilogy - One / Two / Three | DVD | (26/04/2004) from £N/A   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £49.99

    Three films in different genres based around the same set of characters. Each film stands alone but once viewed as a whole the scale and skill of Belvaux's cinematic triple vision is revealed. One: A hard-boiled film-noir and a dramatic start to Lucas Belvaux's trilogy. After a bloody escape from prison political terrorist Bruno (played by the director himself) attempts to resume his campaign of bombings and assassinations. But his colleagues have now comfortably settled into a bourgeois lifestyle so he's forced to go it alone stopping at nothing to achieve his goals... Two: Afraid that he might be dying Alain conceals the truth from Cecil the woman he loves. Despite her instincts she suspects he's lying and prefers to imagine he's having an affair. Yet is it possible everyone is in on the conspiracy including best friend Agnes? Three: Manise is equally devoted to his wife Agn''s and his job as a cop. He has done deals with the local crime boss too. However his troubles are triplefold: he is trying to capture Bruno dealing with the local crime boss and dealing with his wife's addiction to morphine. All these events are threatening to collide with tragic consequences... This is a powerful cinema experience and presented on four DVDs in a specially designed box set Lucas Belvaux's achievements are more evident since they offer the chance to watch simultaneously three different scenes which take place at the same moment in time. Comparisons have been made to Kieslowski's classic 'Three Colours' trilogy but 'One Two And Three' form a trilogy of outstanding achievement.

  • The Right of the Weakest [DVD] [2006]The Right of the Weakest | DVD | (31/12/2015) from £N/A   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £16.99

    Unemployed men attempt a heist in The Right Of The Weakest a dry but thought-provoking Belgian drama. Taking time to develop its characters it sees two former steel workers team up with an ex con in an attempt to help Patrick a broke house husband who dreams of buying his wife a new moped. Their struggles are convincing and fittingly amusing but don't come here looking for laughs: the conclusion is sobering stuff. The Right Of The Weakest opens like a po-faced Belgian version of The Full Monty pleading for sympathy for its out-of-work heroes who are desperate for both cash and respect. Clubbing together to play the lottery they soon realise more drastic means are called for and turn to former robber Marc Pirmet (writer/director Lucas Belvaux) for advice.
