The 11th investment round for Wallimage/Bruxellimage came to an end on Monday, 7th May, after an anxiously awaited board meeting. Given the number and the quality of submitted files, the task at hand was particularly hard for the directors, who were as always obliged to make harsh choices in order to respect the budget.

Finally, three majority and three minority files were selected. These should return some of the most important economic effects in the history of the mixed fund.

Without further ado, letís present our line-up for this session: four feature films and a hugely ambitious series of three documentaries. Suspense behind, but soon also on the big screen! Indeed, this rarely happens but three of the selected projects are thrillers: romantic, noir and even fantastic.

De Behandeling, an adaptation of a Mo Hayder novel, puts a very talented young cop in the middle of a delicate investigation, which will dive him right back into painful past. This very dark thriller, presented by Eyeworks , will be directed by Hans Herbots, who should surprise everyone with his series The Spiral (co-financed by Wallimage/Bruxellimage), announced for broadcast in the fall. One of the assets of the film will be the lead actor, one Matthias Schoenaerts. Totally coincidentally, we will also see him in The Waste Land, submitted by Epidemic. In this strange, grim thriller in the heart of Brussels by night, Matthias will play a police inspector confronted with a ritual murder... and his soon-to-be fatherhood. Pieter van Hees, who already worked with Matthias on the captivating Linkeroever, brings the duo from De Rouille et díOs back together: Bouli Lanners will play a big role.

Our third, and final, thriller will be Mobius. French director Éric Rochantís newest (Les Patriotes, Mafiosa) will take us to the heart of modern finance and its dark secrets. His heroine, a trader working for the CIA, will fall for a Russian Francophile agent. As such, the thriller becomes a Hitchock-style love story under high pressure. Starring? Cécile de FranceJean Dujardin as her serving knight, counting Émilie Dequenne among his team. Thanks to the co-production set up with Artemis, the film shoot will be in Brussels for ten days.

Now, as a countermeasure for all those chills, this round also needed some good laughs. Fortunately, there was My Friend Vijay, Sam Garbarskiís fourth feature film, offering an international fantasy starring a royal cast. Moritz Bleibtreu, a German film star known from Lola run, Soul Kitchen, Munich, Das Experiment and La Bande à Baader, will try in his own very particular way to reconquer his wife, played by American actress Patricia Arquette (known from the hit series Medium but also Lost Highway and True Romance). Entre Chien et Loup went all the way for this crazy comedy in which a man everyone presumes dead attends his own funeral, disguised as a flamboyant Hindu.


Finally, the regional economic funds are not reserved solely for fiction. Ouragans is further proof of this. This series consisting of three episodes scheduled to be broadcast across the world, concentrates on a mysterious meteorological phenomenon with amazing technical means. The first episode will deal with the birth of hurricanes, the second with their impact on nature and the third will try to evaluate the future development of the phenomenon and the dangers (and benefits) for mankind. This Climax co-production allows Belgian technicians and high-tech companies such as Mikros and Digital Garphics to work on this ambitious project, which will be filmed in 3D.

Exciting, isnít it ? It is also very productive for both regionsí global economy, which of course remains the base objective of these investment rounds.
