to count the hairs of Jelle Florizoones beard?
You might be able to do so when you buy the Bluray+DVD collectors edition of “Noordzee Texas” which is going to be released in France on May the 2.
Well…I think the film is totally worth it.
Here’s link to amazon.fr
No English audio or subs but the picture quality of a Bluray will certainly make up for that.
Don’t know about you, but I certainly loved young Belgian actor Jelle Florizoone in “Noordzee Texas” Such a great portrayal of a sensitive gay character.
This movie is among my top three movies of the year 2012.
Now, as I had some free time this weekend I looked around what Jelle might be up these days and I found a new short film called “Corps Perdu” by director Lukas Dhont. Jelle plays a young ballet dancer on tour called Miller who spends the evening after his performance in some hotel room, he all alone. No word is spoken. The camara focuses on Millers skin. Suddenly the door opens and a young man on the run enters the room trying to hide there from the police. Dhont describes an encouter of two characters who would normally not have met in their lifes.
There is a tiny bit of footage in this YT clip from the short film festival in Gent (Belgium)
Director Lukas Dhont starts talking about the film at time index 1:08.
I don’t know if I’ll ever get to see that short but I wish I would.
Maybe readers from Belgium or the Netherlands (I know there are a few ones out there) could keep an eye out for the film and let us know if it’s being broadcast on TV or released on DVD.
Thanks in advance!
A summary can be found here.
I admit it I just wanted to make Dee look by adapting his subject line.
Well, my Jelle ist Jelle Florizoone who stars in Bavo Defurne’s new movie “Noordzee Texas” a coming of age movie about a teen boy who falls in love with the boy next door. You may think “Oh, there is 20 movies like that one already” but it’s not. It’s actually one of the loveliest gay love stories that I have ever seen on film and I have to admit that I was quite close to reach for the tissues at the two or three most touching scenes.
Also, since it it set in the 70s, the film provided some nostalgic moments for me and there’s some lovely Noordzee scenery too.
Both main actors Jelle Florizoone and Marthias Vergels do a great job IMO.
The movie has already been mentioned in gay blog world and I’m so happy that it is out on DVD from Belgium or the Netherlands.
The DVD comes with Dutch audio only (French subs on/off)
For those interested here’s the official trailer
I would think this one is going to be released in other countries as well.
I did some screencaps as well. of course I chose them wisely so the movie wouldn’t get spoiled for you.
I highly recommend it for watching!
