Moscow, Belgium 1.0 stars

Moscow, Belgium movie poster

Improbable romance begins with a meet-cute fender bender in a supermarket parking lot: the woman’s a bedraggled forty-one-year-old Belgian with three kids and a straying husband; the man’s a divorced recovering-alcoholic Italophile twelve years her junior. (Her straggly strands of hair will get smoothed into place post-coitus.) The down-in-the-mouth Barbara Sarafian, who has fleeting facial resemblances to Tim Roth, unfalteringly and almost single-handedly carries the film: earthy and unglamorous, yet contrived and unconvincing for all that. With Jurgen Delnaet, Johan Heldenbergh, Anemone Valcke; directed by Christophe Van Rompaey. 2008.
