Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.04.11] Belgium movie news drama gallery

In June of last year we were privy to the first batch of images from Michaël R. Roskam’s crime drama Bullhead (Rundskop). Around these parts we were pretty excited about the project which was being shot by one of our favoured cinematographers Nicolas Karakatsanis and the first batch of images were fantastic.

The film opened in Belgium earlier in the week and will likely make its way through a handful of festivals and as if preparing for its ocean crossing, an English subtitled trailer for the film has turned up and it’s a pretty fantastic little trailer. It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise considering that nearly everything traded in the black market has some sort of shady underworld connection but I must admit I was a little surprised to see the term “cattle hormone mafia.”

The first thing that struck me about this trailer is that its sleek and brutal. I expect we’ll be seeing a fair bit of violence in this tale of old friends on opposite sides of the law:

A police murder and the following investigation create panic in the so-called Belgian “cattle hormone mafia.” During a transaction, an illegal growth hormone dealer and a police informer face each other in a crime investigation. But then a dark and unsettling story about loyalty and friendship unfolds through their tormented past as childhood friends.

Trailer after the break.
