EVERYBODY HAPPY AND BEHIND THE CLOUDS @ MONTREAL

Nic Balthazar is no stranger to Montreal, where his debut feature Ben X won no less than three awards in 2007. His third feature, starring Peter Van den Begin, Barbara Sarafian and Josse De Pauw, is a modern parable about a successful stand-up comedian who is wrestling with his own worst enemy: his own negativity.

Everybody Happy had its world premiere as part of Montreal’s World Competition. The Belgian premiere followed on September 9 as the opening film of the Film Festival of Oostende, to be followed by a theatrical release on September 28 by KFD.

Also screening in Montreal was Behind the Clouds, the debut feature by Cecilia Verheyden, which was invited for the First Films Competition. Based on a play by Michaël De Cock about two former lovers who meet again after more than 50 years, the film was a box-office hit in Belgium earlier this year.
