Official Belgian Foreign Film Selection for the 89th Academy Awards.
Brothers Dave and Kenneth are reunited on Kenneth's release after four years in prison following a failed home invasion. While Kenneth is anxious to dive headfirst into the drug-centered existence that ensnared him in the first place, both Dave and Kenneth's erstwhile girlfriend, Sylvie, have adopted clean lifestyles. Drugs, crime and the bonds of brotherhood create this dark crime thriller journey in The Ardennes.
The Ardennes shoots for the full Fargo and becomes another movie entirely the sort of darkly comic, take-no-prisoners genre piece in which dismembered body parts and a sudden ostrich attack are par for the course. Ben Kenigsberg, Variety
Straddling the line between arthouse and genre, The Ardennes is a very strong debut sure to challenge and reward fans on both sides of that divide. Todd Brown, Screen Anarchy
