Movie Info

Belgian director Alain Berliner, who made the popular Ma Vie en Rose (1997), followed with this French comedy-drama (another in the Collection 2000 series of movies about the Millennium). In the year 2000, a wall is erected at Belgian's "linguistic border," separating Flemish and French-speaking sides. It lands right in the middle of a French take-out-food shop run by Albert (Daniel Hanssens), who speaks both languages. Shakespearean touches include the ghost of Albert's father (Mil Seghers) and a Romeo and Juliet theme as evidenced by the Flemish girlfriend, Wendy (Pascale Bal), of Albert's son. Shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
