Le fils du requin
Belgium, France, Luxembourg
If you want to know why my mother left, wha my brother Simon and I took off from the old man's place, why we slept rough, why we raided stores ... basically the whole sob story, don't count on me to tell you. The less I think about it, the better I feel.
On the other hand, I can tell you why a goldfish, when it turns, never turns on a curve like everyone else. The fish just swims along and then, all of a sudden, zip, it turns, on the spot. Zip ...!
Why do I know that? Because I, Martin Vanderhoes, I am the shark's son. And to understand that, you have to suffer a lot, and dream a lot too, because people who don't dream, well they might as well be dead ... Right, Simon?
Stop yapping and start the film. Open the goddamn curtains!
