Poelvoorde - Logements sociaux

J'adore!!! Sorry .... it's in French with no subtitles (I couldn't find another version). However, the name of the film, in English, is "MAN BITES DOG", in case you haven't seen it. Starring Belgian actor and comedian Benoit Poelvoorde, who also wrote and directed it, in this little clip he describes his frustration with the lack of aesthetic in these urban developments and comments on the social, emotional, practical and aesthetic impact they have on the people who live there. It is a pseudo-documentary, a comedy, a reflection on life in Belgium, a sarcastic little gem ... not for everyone: it is violent and can be offensive to a lot of people because eventhough it is humor, he is basically saying what so many people (sadly, naively or sometimes brilliantly) think ...
