But most mentionable : no stereotypes, no secret hidden judgements on morals & last but not least the marvellously played Karo character. I suspect that the possibility to obtain financing from the French-speaking government played a part in the decision to make the film bilingual. Which took place when she was a young girl in the early 70s who lived in Amsterdam hippie community with her parents and others under one roof. Apart from that, well, its picturing of left-side Amsterdam in the year 1974 is fairly adequate. By getting her swimming diploma for one. Add another review. Matthias Schoenaerts on the other hand (the father) is sometimes over-acting. She gets help from soft natured prostitute Jacky who is a oases of calmness to her.For many directors the theme of free love community is an excuse for a semi-porn film and luckily that didn't happen here. The little girl who played Karo was very good in handling her role in those particular scenes.The nudism in the film was quite strong but it won't feel like some porn film, it all counts on the way you take it on. The fact that the father is Dutch-speaking while the mother speaks French is a nice statement about bilingual Belgium (their home country, as well as director Van den Berghe's) but doesn't serve any purpose in the film.

To be more precise: given the role she has to play, loaded with lots of adult relationship-complications, her performance is stunning.This performance surely makes the backbone of 'My queen Karo'. The little girl who played Karo was very good in handling her role in those particular scenes.The nudism in the film was quite strong but it won't feel like some porn film, it all counts on the way you take it on. But the thing that makes this film something special is the point of view: the story is seen through the eyes of a young child, who doesn't really understand everything that is happening around her. This is far most the best Flemish film in years! It is mature in every sense whereas other Flemish films tend to look for extremity or genre. In any case: Deborah François, who plays the mother, is a joy to watch. Up front of course we have the adorable Anna Franciska, but the true star of the film is again Schoenaerts who seemingly effortless shifts from character to character in every film and he does with the ease which mark the truly excellent actors. If you enjoy this theme,try Tillsammans(Together) as well. We were there with about eight or ten other people. It tells about her experience she witnessed in her childhood where she was free to share everything and from everyone.As a child to a father whose life was dedicated to the hippie community and to a mother who was passionate about her career in fashion designing Karo was left alone which creates an arrogant behaviour within her. 'My queen Karo' is good, in the first place by the convincing performance of its minor female star.

The film's moral was on the environmental circumstances like this what could a child can become or made by seeing the adult's behaviour. Industry information at your fingertipsOver 200,000 Hollywood insidersEnhance your IMDb PageGo to IMDbPro »Own the rights? Shortly after Karo and her parents Raven and Dalia join a squatters community on the Amsterdam Wallen to live a life without boundaries nothing is certain. It's a realistic portrait, entertaining, nothing overly dramatic, the 70-ies atmosphere for once not overdone, a excellent cast, and we're spared from the same old soundtrack. This film flows like summer breeze and has the nostalgia of a loved memory. This film was not a bad at all, it was directed very well by the director Dorothee and told everything she saw in her child's eye.8/10 When I saw this film on a Friday night in Brussels's largest cinema, the theatre was almost empty. Raven shortly after picks up a relationship with a fellow activist while Dalia is trying to make a life for herself.

That's a pity, because this film is well-written, poetic and beautifully filmed. Adults are making free love especially her father Raven with a fellow activist Alice in the presence of her and her mother. We were there with about eight or ten other people.

Nevertheless, there were a few things I didn't like. The way this dreamy, naive child reacts to the conflicts around her (including those between her parents), is what makes this film stand out. The fact that the father is Dutch-speaking while the mother speaks French is a nice statement about bilingual Belgium (their home country, as well as director Van den Berghe's) but doesn't serve any purpose in the film. Adults are making free love especially her father Raven with a fellow activist Alice in the presence of her and her mother. The script is somehow the weaker point sometimes, but its well compensated by a brilliant cast. The community itself has their own issues trying to get by without getting evicted. Matthias Schoenaerts on the other hand (the father) is sometimes over-acting. If you enjoy this theme,try Tillsammans(Together) as well. Also Deborah François is a delight to watch although her part is a little underwritten. Being an Amsterdam-resident in 1974 myself, I think it all a little too beautiful & idealistic.Another prominent feature of 'My queen Karo': this film obviously is produced by a woman.
