This film is such a shameless crowd pleaser. I can easily see how some people would find it just unbearable. But I really enjoyed it. Forced whimsy and all.
I haven’t seen Forrest Gump, but this is how I would imagine a French version would be like.
So, so French.
I mean Belgian. Belgian!
I’ll rate it on the number of hankies needed to watch this film:
The Brand New Testament. Jaco Van Dormael. 2015. Belgium.
- 1 part amaretto
- 1 part Sambuca
- 1 part Galliano
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
I thought this would be just horrible. It isn’t!
