Belgium has a reputation for dullness (In Bruges) and being invaded by Germans (the Schlieffen Plan), but this delightful film also proves that it’s a place where unlikely love can flourish. Matty (Sarafian) is a middle-aged mother of three whose artist husband (Heldenbergh) has left her and shacked up with one of his students. After an encounter with truck driver Johnny (Delnaet), though, Matty too dabbles in robbing the cradle (he’s more than a decade her junior). Matty’s deliberations between former relationships and new flames result in one of the year’s more realistic onscreen love stories.
