Oscar nominee Bullhead gains a trailer
Bullhead is in the running for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film and from all accounts that's quite rightly so. The comments on the trailer alone are enough to make you go and see it, and while the trailer might not get the story across to you it does have some wonderfully looking and sounding moments.
The Belgian film comes from writer and director Michael R. Roskam and it looks like it could be a strong contender for the Oscar.
The blurb for the film is as mysterious as the trailer itself:
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.
It doesn't tell us a great deal does it? The trailer for Bullhead has plenty of intriguing images but doesn't go much further than the blurb, but again the comments both in the trailer and outside of it suggest that this is something worth seeing.
