The Misfortunates (2009)
13-year-old Gunther Strobbe grows up surrounded by alcohol, trash and his completely useless father and uncles. Slowly but surely, he’s being prepared for the same hapless life. Can he defy his destiny?

Director: Felix van Groeningen
Writer: Christophe Dirickx (screenplay), Dimitri Verhulst (novel), Felix van Groeningen
Actors: Kenneth Vanbaeden, Valentijn Dhaenens, Koen De Graeve, Wouter Hendrickx

In Reetveerdegem, a fictitious derelict hamlet near run-down industrial city Aalst, five debt-burdened drop-out Strobbe brothers move back in with their pensioned mother ‘Meetje’, still wasting their lives in dead-end jobs, alcohol, gambling and meaningless sex. Celle also took in, as if their baby brother, his son Gunther. Nobody expects the knave (13) to grow up and become a respectable citizen either, despite his better IQ and attitude, as his uncles’ and father’s mischief and reputation seem to sabotage every single opportunity. Discovering love may motivate him after all, or accidental paternity could drag him down to father’s level.
