it's a Flemish (dutch) movie, not a french one
"Steve is your average slum french kid with no real future. one day he sees a gorgeous girl at the bowling alley who needs a light. unfortunately shortly after, he's thrown into jail for a load of e, he means an ex-bouncer Jean-claude. Jean-claude is in a wheelchair but hes a cool man and is getting out of jail soon. once he's out he wants to open a club. as luck has it, one of the dancers for his club is Sky, the girl he saw before he went to jail. Steve + Sky is tells about a wild passionate love between the two ruffians" i can agree to that, but i'd just like to add it's not a french movie, but a Belgian one. the movie is not in french but in a dutch accent, "gents", something only native dutch speakers can appreciate i guess. subsequently the soundscapes used in the movie aren't "french" as well, but made by a Belgian (Flemish) duo called "the f*cking dewaele brothers". all in all, i do believe this is an excellent movie by a very talented director. of course we have to take in account it was made with a really small budget (apr. 700.000 USD), so it cant be compared with American blockbuster-movies. if you need one big reason to see the movie: Delfine Bafort, the model-becomes-actress who plays Sky. she IS yummie material.
