In their momentum for a neo-rural life in the Belgian Ardennes countryside, Brice and Lara soon have to face the imminent construction of a holiday resort nearby. A true race against time then starts for the young couple and revolves around Brice's quirky cousin Jacques, a native from the village, prone to mystical visions that will eventually lead them all to the Vatican! In a climate of provincial burlesque comedy both tender and grotesque, the Chapon-Laroche village microcosm, especially our endearing trio, will inexorably undergo a series of metamorphoses.Written by
This is an entertaining comedy about a young couple who have to fight hard to prevent their peaceful acre of land in the Belgian countryside from being invaded by an intrusive holiday campsite. The village of their dreams being under serious threat, all the fret will lead them to the Vatican (and a few shady streets along the way) with Jacques, the quiet, unexpected hero chosen by the Virgin to save the situation. The group of villagers, a goofy but endearing sample of humanity, also add a grain of salt to the initial postcard-like vision of the Belgian countryside and when reality strikes, the lovely village will not exactly remain dreamlike. I enjoyed watching this very entertaining comedy.
