About the Belgica 💬

Felix van Groeningen's film about two brothers who try to survive the Belgium nightlife scene.

  • The story of two brothers - Jo and Frank - and a bar...

BELGICA tells the story of Jo and Frank, two brothers. As is often the case with brothers, they are very different. Jo (Stef Aerts), twentysomething, is not very tall and can only see through one eye. He once had artistic ambitions, but his love for music eventually made him start a bar called BELGICA (based on the real-life Charlatan Bar in Ghent). Frank (Tom Vermeir) is several years older and the big brother on all levels. He is a man of many plans who always gives himself the full hundred percent. He is about to become a father for the second time, has a car dealership and wants to build his own house. Yet Frank is still unhappy with his predictable life. When Frank visits Jo's bar, the brothers reconnect with each other. It is quickly decided that Frank will come and help Jo out at the BELGICA. Jo appreciates the help because the hard bar life demands a lot.

  • Meet BELGICA, the coolest bar in Brussels where best bands of Belgium play and drinks flow like a river.

''Do you know what? This place drives you crazy sometimes. It does.''
Tom Vermeir as Frank

Frank, for his part, is revived by the rock 'n roll of nightlife. In a few weeks time, Jo and Frank turn the BELGICA into the hot spot of nightlife.

''We are Noah's fucking Ark!''
Tom Vermeir as Frank

  • Two brothers - Jo and Frank - run bar 'BELGICA' together. The bigger the success of the bar, the more the brothers lose each other.

''People want to forget their worries and they can do that at the Belgica.''
Stef Aerts as Jo

They are the golden duo and for a while, the sky seems the limit. But nightlife is an addictive trip and the world keeps on spinning.

''The Belgica is a bar where everyone is welcome. And it has to stay that way.''

BELGICA is an immersive experience of the excess and euphoria of being in the hottest nightclub in town. Set to the eclectic sounds of acclaimed Belgian band Soulwax, the film shows the brothers' intoxicating ascent to success - and the crash and burn that follows.

''Sometimes you have to forgive people.''
Stef Aerts as Jo

BELGICA is about living in the moment and realizing that moving forward is not only inevitable but necessary.

''All people are born innocent but most don't stay that way.''
Fouad Oulad Khlie as Mohammed
