John

Belgium / Luxembourg, 1995 (MIFF 1995, Fiction)

Director: Genevieve Mersch

A young woman in Brussels refuses to relinquish a summer relationship with her American boyfriend in Boston. Due in large part to the outstanding performance of Dominique Baeyens as 'Juliette', this film sustains our interest throughout. Beautifully paced and designed, full of subtlety and truth.
