Comment: Mathias Engelbeen and other boys in this catholic boarding school in Flanders with separated beds by curtains. Also other locations, like bedroom at Louis’ home (but close-up scenes and few bedroom scenes) as well as later as a grown-up. Sorry, no better pics yet.

Very interesting movie. I even bought the novel by Hugo Claus (1929-2008) some years ago and have seen this movie in Dutch and French. French title “Le chagrin des Belges”.

Very good actor, plot and scenes, especially in this boarding school and also humiliation scenes in a communal shower and at a doctor.

A similar entry with a better view of such dorms (from above) coming soon.

Bedroom scenes rating 4-5, movie rating 10.
