MUBI's take

Winner of the Caméra d’Or at Cannes in 1991, this magical first feature by Belgian filmmaker Jaco van Dormael indulges in the flashbacks and fantasies of a mischievous old man. Colored with vivid shades of green, this underdog tale is an exorbitantly playful adventure into naivety, envy, and dreams.
