Brussels Inferno

Belgium, 1978 (MIFF 1979)

Director: Marc Levie

First, with fire and flame, silent witnesses of the history of Brussels recall the city's,turbulent past and tell of its growth from its legendary origins to its place today at the crossroads of Europe. Then follows a 'Descent into Hell' to a surrealist rhythm from demons in stone to the canvasses of Paul Delvaux.
