Patrick is a quiet and introverted furniture maker who lives in his father’s nudist colony. When his hammer disappears and his father drops dead, Patrick’s world spins out of control. Suddenly he has to deal with a camp full of disgruntled naked retirees – all while trying to find out who stole his hammer. Filled with bizarre situations, quirky characters and scenes which move from comedy to tragedy in the blink of an eye, PATRICK is a remarkably assured and idiosyncratic debut from veteran TV director Tim Mielants.
Tim Mielants (Belgium) PATRICK is Mielants’ first feature film.
