About the Movie

Pim lives with his ex-beauty queen, single mother in a small town on the Belgian coast. Introverted, he spends his childhood drawing and dreaming up fantasy lives while keeping his emerging desires a secret. As a teenager, he grows infatuated with his older neighbor and motorcycling hero, Gino. But his first love seems likely to end in disappointment. Meanwhile, his mother Yvette (Eva Van Der Gucht, Everybody Famous) longs to leave everything behind and see the world. Their two dreams collide when a handsome man arrives in town and becomes their new lodger.

Fresh: A soulful, slightly hyperreal comedy ... – Chris Packham, Village Voice, Nov 1, 2012

Rotten: It's not just that film is underdeveloped - it's that it feels unwilling to develop, preferring to leave its characters and plot points static. The result feels stunted. – Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, Chicago Sun-Times, Feb 14, 2013

The Best Romantic Movie<3

I instantly fell in love with Pim, this movie hooks you in straight from the beginning! i highly highly recommend this to everyone:)

Good Film

I was impressed with the storytelling. Not the average teenage coming out or falling for the hot jock story. It was well thought out with great depth and substance.

Glad I watched this one!

What a great change from the typical movie. Great acting by the entire cast. The dialogue is in Dutch with English subtitles. Please don't let that deter you from watching this movie; if anything, it kind of enhances the experience. Excellent, I highly recommend.
