I loved the "realness" of this movie....no fairy tale characters here. I felt that even though my life is very different, I resonated with a lot of the feelings expressed by the female lead- about life and love and the acceptance that nothing is perfect. I enjoyed the movie very much ...and yes, I'm a hopeless romantic :)

Another excellent and pleasant discovery! In "Aanrijding in Moscou" ("Moscow, Belgium") from 2007, we have a bittersweet romantic comedy that is so unlike your typical Hollywood garbage! This is such a refreshing take on the May/December romance, without the flights of fantasy or the need to plunge into unnecessary comic-relief. 'Matty' (Barbara Sarafian) and 'Johnny' (Jurgen Delnaet), are two complete opposites that are thrown together in the most hilarious and unpredictable way. They soon find common ground together and, can't help but fall in love.

The film works fairly well in many ways: the willingness to realistically show the joys and travails of daily existence; in how we bring baggage that may not be so acceptable/forgivable to a new relationship. There was a scene where 'Matty' (who's 41 and has 3 kids), was checking her nude body out in front of the mirror (after spending the night with 'Johnny') and, saw why a man of 29 would still find her very attractive. The Europeans are way ahead of us: they don't see shame/guilt in the human body (like the puritanical 'Hollywood movie-business'), and there's the real reason in why they're so much more open/willing to tackle all kinds of subject-matter in an honest and respectable way.

Barbara Sarafian is an excellent actress (I have to see what else she's in), and she made this film all the more interesting. The rest of the cast were all very good too. You won't be disappointed with this wonderfully refreshing comedy-romance. NTSC, Dutch/Flemish (English subtitles), NR 102 mins.

Love and Peace,
Carlos Romero

Moscow, Belgium is a wonderfully complex, tender and funny story. In order to watch it as often as I wished, I bought a copy. Re-watching certain segments brigngs out new meaning, more laughs and more respect for the author. I recommend it to American audiences because it is so different from Hollywood. This is a movie that doesn't go for the big bang, or even a small one. We are left with a muted finale that just satisfies one's need for a quiet, believable glimpse into the future for two people with little money but lots of love in spite of society's expectations. One doesn't have to donform to be happy.

Awful movie. An older woman gets together with a younger guy who has beaten up his wife so badly she was in the hospital for two weeks. When he drinks he becomes violent. Her other alternative is her husband, who is a pompous ass but who at least hasn't put anyone in the hospital. I hate romantic comedies where you don't want the leads to get together. I really did not want Matty, the heroine, to get together with this guy who was violent and could easily kill her or one of her three kids in a fit a rage. Do not understand why anyone would think this is a good movie. Would've been better if she left both of them, like in Bed and Sofa. There's a great foreign film about a love triangle.

One the best films of the year. A quirky, surprising, touching story of lives and loves that will capture your heart.. after a most unlikely beginning. Barbara Sarafian gives an Oscar-caliber performance and Jurgen Delnaet is splendid as her truck-driver amour. A low-budget film that delivers in a big way.

First things first: I grew up in Belgium, about 30 min. away from where this movie is set (in and around Ghent, Belgium). I had heard great things about this movie through various Belgian connections, but had never had a chance to see it, until now.

"Moscow, Belgium" (106 min.; originally released in 2009) brings the daily struggles of a 41 yr. old woman, Matty, whose husband has moved out due to a fling with a 22 yr. former student. Matty meets Johnny as a result of a car accident in a parking lot, and unexpectedly takes a liking to this much younger man (29 yrs). Things develop from there. Not much really happens, other than to observe the characters in their daily life, and this is not a complaint, mind ya. Matty tries to handle her 3 kids and her husband, while at the same trying to figure out if much younger Johnny, who has himself some skelletons from the past, can really be the one for her. You'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

In all, I was incredibly pleased with this movie, and yes proud (being from Belgium). Who would've thunk it that such a great movie could've been made in Belgium? Special shout-out to Barbara Sarafian as Matty and Anemone Valcke a her 17 yr. old daughter, both of whom bring fantastic performances. This movie picked up a bunch of awards at various fims festivals (including Cannes), and for good reason. By all means, check this out!

The story as well as the actors maintain a marvelous balance of laughter and tears, of the mundane and the profound, and of crisis and romance

This was in my opinion probably one of the best films of 2009, and definitely one of the best Rom-Com with a refreshingly plausible meet-cute and "real" people. The film is at 94% on RottenTomatoes, and won the Critic's Week section at the Cannes Film Festival. The acting is top notch, with an oscar caliber performance by the lead, Barbara Sarafian, and the direction is wisely understated. The script is just filled with humanity and life.

Can you tell I loved it? Also a great original score which I hope will be available at some point on amazon.
