Watch The Trailer For Dark Crime Thriller WASTE LAND
An ultra dark crime thriller - think the recent wave of Nordic Noir, but grottier - Van Hees' latest is a selection of both Toronto and Fantastic Fest and while we missed the trailer when it first arrived a few days back we've spotted it now and can't let it pass by without sharing. Here's how Toronto pitches the film:
Check out the trailer below and never, ever take parenting advice from this man.Hard-edged and hard-working homicide detective Leo Woeste (Jérémie Renier) spends his days confronting the grim criminal underworld of Brussels, and finds solace in his domestic life with partner Kathleen (Natali Broods) and her five-year-old son. While Leo is working to solve the brutal murder of a young Congolese-Belgian man, he and Kathleen discover that she's unexpectedly pregnant with their first child together. He vows to make this his final homicide case, and follows the trail deep into a bizarre subculture involving the mysterious trade of Congolese idols. When he finds himself drawn to the victim's sexy and enigmatic sister (Babetida Sadjo), Leo begins to slip away from the very family life he is trying to protect, and his fears about fatherhood and the nature of evil consume him. His animal instincts take hold, and he spirals into the abyss of his own darkness, haunted by the question of whether he'll be able to claw his way back.
