Around the Ring

Belgium, 2002 (MIFF 2002, Animation)

Director: Frederic Hainaut

Arthur, a mediocre boxer, attracts the attention of a ruthless promoter and the sympathy of Jeanne, who is wise to the arranged mismatch. However, his gloves are Arthur's true allies. A vibrant film from a largely novice crew.
