Le Fidèle / Racer and the Jailbird

by Michaël R. Roskam Gala Premieres

Gino „Gigi“ Vanoirbeek has been known to the Belgian police since childhood. The once small-time criminal and his gang are infamously robbing banks. It is love at first sight when Gigi meets the charmingly unconventional car racer Bibi. Not long after that the notorious criminal and the daughter of a well-to-do family become an inseparable couple. Just as Gigi begins to think about a life in the legal lane, the next big coup is just around the corner – and the police are soon at his heels again. But neither a prison cell nor anything else can hinder passionate love and unbridled loyalty. In his third directorial work, Michaël R. Roskam sets the boundary-busting love story of his two protagonists against the gloomy backdrop of 1980s Belgium.
