24 Hour Party People

Haven't we all been there? In the early morning hours at the end of the after party, when you get the brilliant idea of opening a bar or a night club? In Felix van Groeningen's latest film we meet a couple of dodgy characters who actually make their dream a reality and the result is not only a rowdy rollercoaster of a business venture, it's also a funny, sad and extremely entertaining film. Like a Flemish version of 101 REYKJAVIK, BELGICA is an immediate classic of the party movie genre.
