In Antwerp, Marie is a world-class runner at 22, with a general air of discontent. She learns she has chronic fatigue syndrome and must stop training for a month. At the track she’s met Bobby, an archer, and they start a relationship. Bobby invites her to stay with him while recovering: he lives at West Bank, three tall blocks of flats built on an isolated plot. Marie’s mom doesn’t like the arrangement, Marie is soon vomiting, and she learns that the previous tenant in Bobby’s flat disappeared leaving notes about the building’s cellar and photos of the area before West Bank was built. The missing woman’s boyfriend visits one day. What’s going on?
There are only so many story lines guys. All Romcoms are about getting the girl, action flicks about getting the honour or the loot and so on. So yes this is an old story like Rosemary’s baby and many many more.
Why do i give this one so much credit? Because it’s a subtle story with solid acting. No Hollywood over abundance. Just a very well acted film with a classic story that moves slowly but steadily forward to a surprising ending. The story is rounded. There is a why and a how appose to just horror for the making of a scary film. I thought it to be very original within it’s genre and the ending is brilliant. It has the suspense of the old Polanskis like The Tennant. Who can we thank for this? Matthias Schoenaerts! What’s not too love about this flemish gem.
