[6.75/10] Rundskop a.k.a. Bullhead (2011)

Rundskop a.k.a.
Bullhead (2011)

QuickRating: Belgium's official Oscar entry is definitely not easy to watch, and the plot structure is kind of complicated, even though the story itself seems fairly simple at first, but what makes "Rundskop" truly unforgettable, powerful and affecting is the lead character Jacky Vanmarsenille, played outstandingly by Matthias Schoenaerts, as well as his shattering, yet incredibly moving personal story of struggle.

I'll have to give this one a try. I saw A Separation from this year's Foreign Language entries as well as Footnote.

Mel, "the truth about Jacky" is shocking. I mean what had happened to him when he was a kid it terrible and has affected his life forever. I hope you liked A Separation. t was a brilliant film.
