DANY / MON KET (N/C 15+)

 

In his debut feature Belgian actor François Damiens returns to his first love – creating a feature film using hidden cameras. Damiens plays Dany who is serving a long-term prison sentence, which he intends to cut short when he learns that his young teenage son, Sullivan (Mattéo Salamone), has decided to seek legal emancipation. His son is his only remaining pride and joy, so Dany escapes, dragging along with him Sullivan and his “godfather” (Christian Brahy) on an escapade as beautiful as it is absurd. On their way, they meet many witnesses who become accomplices or opponents in turn. Dany hopes to correct past mistakes with his son, and over the course of just a few days tries to make up for an upbringing that has been patchy at best.
