This Thursday afternoon, the Cannes winners had an appointment at the Elysette, the headquarters of the Walloon government, which for the occasion, also welcomed representatives of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne and a very fit Bouli Lanners, bearded like a Viking warrior (he plays in the next Asterix, also co-produced by Wallimage) were awarded the Golden Pen 2011. And a box of excellent chocolates. You are either Belgian or you are not.
Naturally, Philippe Reynaert, director of Wallimage could not resist the pleasure of telling a good anecdote. Which obviously makes Jean-Pierre Dardenne and the minister Jean-Claude-Marcourt happy.
