- General info
'Belgica' is essentially a tale of two brothers who don’t know when the party is over. There’s Jo (Stef Aerts) the self-effacing, quietly confident bar manager, and his older brother Frank (Tom Vermeir), who’s reminiscent of an over-excited character from a Eugene O’Neill play: a middle-aged white man who is constantly banging on about pipe dreams and drinking far too much booze. Frank’s bored of his home life, which consists of working at a used car lot and helping his wife out at the kennels, and wants some ‘rock’n’roll’ in his life. He decides Jo’s bar is the place to find that and, even though he can’t pour a pint, he throws in with his brother and sets about turning the bar into a club...
