François Damiens

FRANÇOIS DAMIENS (*1973) is a Belgian actor and comedian best known in his home country for hidden camera pranks.

rated for 0 + years
Following in the footsteps of Borat, this Belgian cinema hit is an anarchic comedy about a whacky ex-con and his son which uses hidden cameras to blur the line between fact and fiction. Seasoned petty criminal Dany has decided not to let his 15-year old son out of his sight. There's just one small problem: Dany's in prison. The only solution is to break out so he can prepare his offspring for the important questions life poses, like about crime, cigarettes and alcohol. But Dany's strange behaviour and idiosyncratic methods of parenthood aren't universally approved and provoke extreme reactions from his fellow humans.
