The flashy adaptation of the book by aging Belgian provocateur Herman Brusselmans is as systematically offensive and boisterously vulgar as its degenerate punk protagonists. Or at least that's the aim.
One of the film's greatest strengths is its rendering of punk's style, sound, and seedy milieu, showing in explicit detail how lost souls might redeem themselves in one explosive half-hour in the spotlight.
Because of the continuous barrage of swear words, bloody violence and explicit sex, distribution beyond its home country will be difficult, but industry professionals should all note the director's name, however: M-O-R-T-I-E-R.
