Bullhead is a Flemish (Belgian) film by the director Michael R. Roskam. [B]Quick summary:[/B] The young Limburg cattle farmer Jacky Vanmarsenille is approached by an unscrupulous veterinarian to make a shady deal with a notorious West-Flemish beef trader. But the assassination of a federal policeman, and an unexpected confrontation with a mysterious secret from Jacky's past, set in motion a chain of events with farreaching consequences. BULLHEAD is an exciting tragedy about fate, lost innocence and friendship, about crime and punishment, but also about conflicting desires and the irreversibility of a man's destiny. [B]Trailer: [/B] [video=youtube;aZnPqAHd1_4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZnPqAHd1_4[/video] I did not expect this movie to be as good as it is, I really loved the camerawork and the general feel/mood of this film. It really captures the life of a Flemish farmer and the dark side of the meat industry in Belgium. I felt really connected with the character Jacky (played by Mathias Schoenaerts) who followed a strict diet and power trained 6 times a week for a whole year to play this character. The film is also nominated for the Oscar of "Best foreign movie". Watch it!
