North Sea Texas

Gay Essential Opinion: North Sea Texas (Noordzee, Texas)

The beauty of North Sea Texas lies in its simplicity. The film is beautifully shot and brilliantly acted, especially by Jelle Florizoone, Eva van der Gucht and Katelijne Damen who deliver outstanding performances. Bavo Defurne achieves so much without having to rely on dialogue, using very distinct and bold colours (just think about Pim’s yellow shirt or Yvette’s yellow evening dress) as well as amazing long shots of the Belgian coastline.
