22 mei (22nd of May) (2011)
A man is visited by the spirits of the dead after he failed to prevent a disaster in this drama from Belgian filmmaker Koen Mortier. Sam (Sam Louwyck) works as a security guard at a shopping center, and has arrived at work for another dreary day when he's greeted by a massive explosion. As the blast rips through the mall and turns a number of the stores into wreckage, Sam bursts in and does what he can to help the customers and employees trapped in the wreckage, but there's only so much he can do and he wanders away. As Sam drifts through the streets of the city, he's confronted by the specters of the people caught in the explosion as they tell him of their lost dreams and hopes and point out how he failed to save them from the bombing. In time, Sam also confronts the man who planted the bomb, and is forced to hear his self-centered justifications for the horrific crime as Sam wrestles with his own guilt. 22 Mei (aka 22nd Of May) received its North American premiere at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More
