Synopsis

Synopsis


The young Limburg cattle farmer Jacky Vanmarsenille is approached by an unscrupulous veterinarian to make a shady deal with a notorious West-Flemish beef trader. But the assassination of a federal policeman, and an unexpected confrontation with a mysterious secret from Jacky’s past, set in motion a chain of events with far-reaching consequences.

BULLHEAD is an exciting tragedy about fate, lost innocence and friendship, about crime and punishment, but also about conflicting desires and the irreversibility of a man’s destiny.

Press

"Bullhead is a disturbingly visceral male drama with a brooding central performance from Matthias Schoenaerts."

SCREEN DAILY

"A showcase for the exceptionally talented Matthias Schoenaerts, who seriously beefed up for the titular role"
