BULLHEAD
RUNDSKOP
2011, Kinepolis Film Distribution, 124 min, Belguim, Dir: Michael R. Roksam

A major box-office success in Belgium as well as an official selection of the Berlinale 2011, first-time writer-director Michael R. Roksam's "crossbreed of hormone-mafia thriller and intense character study... [and] rural potboiler" (Variety) follows bulky, brawny cattle worker Jacky (Matthias Schoenaerts in a powerhouse performance), who becomes embroiled in a lethal web opposite hormone trafficking gangsters when an unscrupulous veterinarian (Sam Louwyk) tries to convince Jacky to get involved in an illegal business scheme. BULLHEAD won the New Auteurs Audience Award at AFI Fest 2011, and lead actor Matthias Schoenaerts won the New Auteurs Acting Award Prize.

"Matthias Schoenaert's raging bull is a standout performance...His head bowed low, always ready for a fight, Schoenaerts glares at the world from under his brow, making Jacky's vulnerability as palpable as his tremendous capacity for violence." - The Hollywood Reporter
