Is there ever a good time to tell your brother that his four years spent in stir — taking the rap for a job you both committed — was just enough time for you and his ex to fall head-over-heels in love? The question that becomes a running gag in Robin Pront’s handsomely-dressed-with-no-place-to-go Flemish noir. Shockingly, volatile ex-con Kenny (Kevin Janssens) can barely hold down the job at the carwash that his guilt-stricken brother Dave (Jeroen Perceval) arranged for him. As if that weren’t enough to justify a feature, Pront pads the running time with those all-too-familiar plot subpoints, pregnancy and drug abuse. Once again, a twist ending plays like a foregone conclusion, as Pront stops at nothing short of melodramatic contrivance and gratuitous brutality to prove just how similar these siblings are. Robrecht Heyvaert’s brooding nighttime cinematography is the film’s one saving grace. (2016) — Scott Marks
