"The film is pretty short and rightfully so. A joke can only be stretched that far, and when you start getting used to the tone of the film the fun slowly fades."
"Hartsuiker succeeds in his mission, as he delivers a visually accomplished document with a superb soundtrack, transporting you to a world not quite like ours."
"With his first feature, Govaerts delivers a rock solid genre film. It's tense and moody, never too gory, beautifully shot, aptly scored and generally well-directed."
"Falling somewhere between the world of commercial and arthouse cinema, the film may have some trouble finding an appreciative audience, luckily there's been plenty of positive buzz."
"If you like quirky and absurd comedies that draw the most from a simple premise, backed by some incredibly talented comedy actors, you really can't go wrong with this film."
"The atmosphere is pleasantly bleak, dark and loaded, there's a little audiovisual bravoure, the actors are on point and the plot keeps you guessing."
"There's simply nothing out there that matches the experience of submerging yourself in 56 minutes of moody, ambient glitches tailored to wildly morphing abstract visuals."
"Whatever your expectations, Vinyan will stay with you. It's an experience not easily forgotten, tailored to perfection by Du Welz and his team. It's brooding, intense and filled with individuality."
"It's beautifully shot, consciously directed, perfectly acted and a perfect mix of a twisted backwards horror with a dark and nasty comedy."
"Together with Small Gods, Dirty Mind, 22 Mei and Any Way The Wind Blows, Ex Drummer marks the top of Flemish cinema."
"I just hope the poor reception won't hinder Mortier in his next project. The man deserves to keep on filming and to grow as a film maker."
"Small Gods is a unique film that is stylistically strong enough to impose a feeling on the viewer without much impulses from the story itself."
"Tom Barman delivers a surprisingly fun, unique and mature film that isn't exactly a comedy, but still contains enough moments that are worthy of a chuckle."
"Man Bites Dog is a landmark film for Belgian cinema. It's one of the first (if not the first) Belgian genre film that went on to become a critical international success."
"Alléluia is definitely a film that grew on me. The crescendo is skilfully executed and even continued after the film had finished."
"There is plenty to love here. The film knows no weak points, has a strong heart and makes the 160 minutes seem like a short introduction to the main story."
"Cannibal is definitely my kind of film. Incredibly atmospheric, uncompromising and unique."
"It's a real shame that the dream sequences weren't handled in a different way. It would've been the final touch to an already strong film."
"A smart, funny and original film that charms all the way through. The direction is steadfast, the film looks gorgeous, sports a neat soundtrack and has a billion little touches that inspire joy."
"Van Hees really proved his worth with his second film. Dirty Mind is funny, bears a good and original story and is well directed on all fronts to help create a solid feel for the film."
"The final thirty minutes are a true delight, even when Raaphorst doesn't cash in on the tension and the gore, the creature effects and designs alone are enough to keep the film going."
"De Patrick has a very interesting look, sports a great soundtrack, isn't childish about its subject matter and is mysterious, darkly funny and somewhat baffling throughout."
"If you have a soft spot for claymation or you're just looking for a zany comedy, A Town Called Panic will not disappoint."
