A film by Vincent BAL
2014 – Belgium / Luxembourg – Musical Comedy – 100'
SYNOPSIS Two Belgian brass bands, the Flemish Saint Cecilia and the Walloon En Avant, have both been selected for the great European final. The Walloons are blown into the final by Hugues, their exceptionally talented and handsome trumpet player. When Saint Cecilia’s soloist drops dead on stage, Elke, daughter of the band’s conductor Joseph, has the solution: let’s buy that Walloon supertalent out. ‘Brabançonne’ is a musical comedy about Belgium where all possible means are used to outdo the other: double-crossing, schmaltzy songs and even love.
