Movie Info

A pair of misfits on the wrong side of the law fall in love in this offbeat independent drama from Belgium. Steve (Titus De Voogdt) thinks he's having a good night when he meets a beautiful woman named Sky (Delfine Bafort) at a nightclub, but he forced to reconsider that opinion moments later when he manages to get busted for selling ecstasy. While in jail, Steve becomes friendly with Jean-Claude (Johan Heldenbergh), a philosophical sort who is confined to a wheelchair. After he's released, Steve goes to work for Jean-Claude, helping out at his strip club, only to run into Sky again; it seems she makes her living as a stripper and turns tricks when finances demand it, and has a close friendship with Jean-Claude. Steve and Sky soon fall for one another, but Steve becomes curious about the true nature of her relationship with Jean-Claude. Steve + Sky was the first feature film from writer and director Felix Van Groeningen.

Critic Reviews for Steve + Sky

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

With its deliberately washed-out color palette, affectless dialogue and nearly event-free story line, Steve + Sky is a mere slip of a movie, a wan character study of people who add up to little more than a series of studied quirks.

July 8, 2005 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Felix Van Groeningen's low-budget romance is also sly -- if utterly superficial -- fun.

July 8, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4

Hugely tedious and mostly incomprehensible, Quentin Tarantino-wannabe Dutch director Felix van Groeningen's Steve + Sky is the kind of foreign movie that gives subtitles a bad name.

July 8, 2005 | Rating: 0/4

The sense of midnight-movie déja vu carries into the herky-jerk, non-linear screenplay and the fluorescent, life-is-a-sex-club-at-two-a.m. art design.

Top Critic

As aimless as its protagonists, Steve + Sky proves equally inept at irreverence and profundity.

July 6, 2005 | Full Review…

...empty and ultimately pointless...
