CAFÉ DERBY
2015, 90 min, Belgium, Dir: Lenny Van Wesemael

When Pope John Paul II came to Belgium in 1985, it was a blessing for tens of thousands of believers – and a few entrepreneurs. Born salesman Georges (Wim Opbrouck) learns of the pontiff’s upcoming open-air mass and plans to make a fortune by setting up shop in the nearby Café Derby, but Georges’ wife and five kids have seen enough of his get-rich-quick schemes to know better. In her feature debut, Van Wesemael deftly captures the humor and frustrations of this slightly dysfunctional family.
