EN - Against an artificial romanticised background, two young women meet. The summer day inspires them to reminisce about their former friendship and their lives, talking about their careers, families, loves and illnesses. Gradually it becomes clear that the life they talk about is a vision of a future yet to be lived.

NL - In de artificiële, geromantiseerde omgeving van een park ontmoeten twee jonge vrouwen elkaar. De zomerse dag inspireert hen te mijmeren over hun vroegere vriendschap en hun persoonlijke levensloop, waarin carrière, gezin, liefde en ziekte aan bod komen. Na een tijdje wordt duidelijk dat het leven waarover ze het hebben een toekomstvisie is van een nog te beleven bestaan.

Good start for Ghent Film Fest

Robin Pront's feature debut The Ardennes is the opening attraction at the 42nd Film Fest Ghent (13-24 October). The film, receiving its European première, is just one of the many indigenous titles Belgium's oldest and largest festival has in its programme this year. There are in total five Flemish features, one TV series, a dozen shorts, and two co-productions with Flanders.

The ArdennesOpening the Fest is The Ardennes starring Veerle Baetens (The Broken Circle Breakdown), Kevin Janssens and Jeroen Perceval, with the latter also co-writing the script with director Robin Pront. The film has already attracted attention at this year's Toronto International Film Festival where it had its world premiere and was picked up by distributors in such key territories as France (Diaphana) and Italy (Satine). Producer is Bart van Langendonck for Savage Film, the company behind Oscar-nominated Bullhead. International sales are handled by Montreal-based Attraction Distribution.
