Description

This exuberant and entertaining musical comedy uses the fierce rivalry between two Belgian brass bands — the Flemish St. Cecilia and the Walloon (French-speaking) En Avant — as they vie for a European championship to send up the intractable competition between Belgium’s two language groups in almost every walk of life. Director Bal and screenwriter Pierre De Clercq (who penned Hasta la vista!) successfully channel the beating heart of classic Hollywood musical romances, even as the narrative remains 100% Belgian. They don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
