This is great, the Mussels from Brussels plays a stressed out version of himself in this crime drama (it’s quite funny too). He is having a bad day and gets caught up in a bank heist in Brussels, and has a bit of a personal crisis inside. At one point he directly addresses the audience, it’s the best part of the film, Peter Bradshaw reviewed the film for The Guardian and called the monologue “a Godardian coup de cinéma”. Indeed it was Peter.
Everyone else is great too, the main bad guy is a deliberate lookalike of Sal from Dog Day Afternoon, in fact, the setup is identical to that film. Top stuff.
