This new French-language film—screened at the Aero as part of its monthly "Grit and Whimsy IV: The Best of Recent Belgian Cinema" series—looks at a serious issue in a surprising, different way. Mother—and host of her local "Christian Hope Radio" show—Elisabeth decides to seek vigilante, bloody justice after her son's suicide when she discovers he was victim to a priest's pedophilia in Director Vincent Lannoo's black comedy. Stick aroung after the movie for a discussion with star Astrid Whetnall and producer Lionel Jadot, then lighten the mood with a rowdy Belgian beer reception.
