The Hormonic States of America, the Hormone Mafia and cattle...
A richly complex and dark story - shot with the eye of a true artist.
There are so many threads to this - so many clashing emotions - no matter how may threads there are, only one matters and it is the only one that is resolved...it is that powerful.
Schoenaerts delivers a staggering performance.
Roskam has produced a work of precise art.
The young Limburg cattle farmer Jacky Vanmarsenille is approached by an unscrupulous veterinarian to make a shady deal with a notorious West-Flemish beef trader. But the assassination of a federal policeman, and an unexpected confrontation with a mysterious secret from Jacky's past, set in motion a chain of events with farreaching consequences. BULLHEAD is an exciting tragedy about fate, lost innocence and friendship, about crime and punishment, but also about conflicting desires and the irreversibility of a man's destiny.
