Director: Michael R Roskam
Cast: Matthias Schoenaerts
A major box office success in Belgium, the film follows Jacky, a cattle farmer who maintains a strict regimen of hormones and steroids. Against his better judgment, Jacky agrees to make a backdoor deal with a mafia connected West-Flemish beef trader. But the consequences of his decision soon come to haunt him when a federal agent is murdered and a woman from Jacky’s past emerges. A blistering debut for director Michael Roskam with a breakout performance from Matthias Schoenaerts, Bullhead is a crime film bursting with originality and brimming with thematic pathos.
