Best new Belgian Movies (2017) - Top Netflix & Cinema

The Dardenne Brothers, Chantal Akerman, Felix van Groeningen… just a few names to remind you of the greatness of this small country’s great cinema. We selected the most interesting Belgian films down here!
The Vore's Film staff selects the top best Belgian movies of 2017 in cinema, DVD and Netflix. Are Felix van Groeningen, Michaël R. Roskam & Lenny Van Wesemael Belgium's biggest directors?

“What’s happening in this small, rather petty country?”, one would ask oneself. Browsing through its latest achievements in the art of audiovisual storytelling is one way to fill in some blanks. Easier said than done. When observing the variety in Belgian films offered in Belgian multiplexes – or rather its lack off – and listening to the media or simple word-of-mouth, one cannot help to be dispirited. Highly appreciated films in the recent past like the award-winning The Broken Circle Breakdown, by Felix van Groeningen, and Het Vonnis, by Jan Verheyen, following only well-trodden paths and not daring to explore new ones, don’t produce one single mesmerizing or thought-provoking bit. This being said, it may most likely be the case in every single country. But where to find these exceptions of true cinematic beauty, these truthful and innovative pleasures every country reveals from time to time in large or small quantities? A hard task, regarding Belgium, understandably so. A country that suffers from an overload of social dramas, like Offline, by Peter Monsaert.
