Movie Info

Marion Hansel directed this Belgian-French-Dutch-Spanish drama, adapted from the novel by Damon Galgut, about an escaped criminal (John Lynch), who gets a lift from a minister (Serge-Henri Valcke). When the minister makes a sexual advance, the two skirmish -- leading to the minister's accidental death. After he buries the body at an inactive quarry, the escapee heads for the dead man's destination, where he easily assumes the ministerial position and is accepted by the community -- a situation threatened when small-time thieves realize he's an impostor. In addition to an award for Takashi Kako's music score, this film shared the top award at the 1998 Montreal Film Festival.
