One Sentence: The best unexpected performance of Fantastic Fest. 

What if I told you the single best acting performance at Fantastic Fest was from Jean-Claude Van Damme would you believe me? Well it's true.  This movie told from the point of view of the real man behind the actor, was a huge surprise.  I am glad I saw this movie, and I think everyone that has ever heard of Van Damme would want to see this movie.  It is a hidden treasure.

I guess you would call it a comedy, about a bank heist and JCVD all in the middle.  It deals with his life, his past and his stardom in Brussels.  It is not only an excellent performance but an excellent movie all helmed by the best acting performance I have seen at this fest so far.  I left the movie amazed, and happy that I had seen it.  It just was a quality film and really left me speechless for a while.  

The audience in the movie not only clapped at the end of the movie, but in the middle after a specific monolog by Jean-Claude.  Everything you have ever known about JCVD is thrown out the window here and we are better for it.  This movie and this performance made me a believer out of Jean-Claude Van Damme, and I hope we see more from him because of it.  Try to see this movie somehow, however you can, it is a must see.
