Moscow, Belgium
Filmfest 2008

Ghent in Belgium, in a working quarter named Moscow. 41-year old single mom Matty is just pulling out of the mall parking lot when she crashes into a truck driven by 29-year-old trucker Johnny. The two get into a heated argument over whose fault it was, and pretty soon are falling into a just as heated love affair. Matty has a hard time resisting the stubby, long-haired Johnny, even though the mother of two is afraid of risking her heart again. And her kids are even more skeptical. Meanwhile, her ex-husband Werner finds himself increasingly jealous of the new guy, even though he would never admit it ... This Belgian fresh-faced comedy hit was invited to the Cannes 2008 Critics' Week.
