The Ardennes

The fall guy for a heist gone wrong, Kenneth (Kevin Janssens) is released from prison after keeping silent for years about his two accomplices—his former girlfriend (Veerle Baetens) and his brother, Dave (Jeroen Perceval), who are now lovers. The premise for this Belgian crime thriller seems generic, but the tension escalates steadily as Dave tries to conceal his romance and Kenneth, a hair-trigger psycho, is reunited with an old cellmate (Jan Bijvoet) who lives in a dive outside a wildlife park. Robin Pront directed a script that he and Perceval adapted from the latter's play; amid the plot twists lies a tricky conundrum about the relative culpability of miscreants and their enablers. In Flemish and French with subtitles.
