NR, 85 min, Belgium & Netherlands in Dutch, French with English Subtitles


“A cleaning lady falls asleep on the last subway after working late in Ghost Tropic, and this seemingly mundane mistake is the beginning of a beautifully observed, hushed nocturnal odyssey as the middle-aged woman has to travel across much of Brussels to try and get home. This is the third feature from Flemish filmmaker Bas Devos, whose exquisite debut about a boy in mourning, Violet, won the Berlinale Generation’s Grand Prix in 2014 and whose second work, the bleak Brussels-in-times-of-terrorism tale Hellhole, premiered in Berlin’s Panorama strand just a few months ago. Here, hope seems to have returned as the director casts a benign eye on a complex but nonetheless beautiful world.” Hollywood Reporter
