what about a movie?

Mood Indigo – L’écume des jours (2013) –   from Michel Gondry is now showing at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema.  Don’t be fooled by the brochette of French actors … beATL discovered that Belgian actors Jean-Pierre Denuit (Concierge conférence) and Frederic Etherlinck (born Frédéric Van Goitsenhoven-Maeterlinck – Interviewer Partre) are amongst the cast.   In addition, co-producer Genevieve Lemal and Alexia De Coster (coordinator in charge of production) belong to the Belgians behind the scenes… Not to mention they filmed for 2 weeks in Saint-Gilles (Brussels) and at the KIK-IRPA (Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage – Cinquantenaire) where its remarkable helical suspended stairwell running over 5 floors plays a role in the movie.   Maybe it’s a little stretch since the Belgian rooted actors don’t have the most exciting roles but they give us enough reason to declare it a Belgian-related movie!

So before it disappears from this screen – as typically they don’t stay that long, let’s go to the movies:
