Few people know where is Belgium or its history. But if you want to know who are the Belgians, go see this movie. We, Belgians, may be proud of our limitless creativity, our straightforward sincerity, our openness to others & everything. This film you'll never forget, this crazy, hard rock, guts-grabbing movie has a hell of a lot Belgian ID!- Look also for Boulli's short one : "TRAVELLINCKX", not on MUBI's data base.
Just like it didn't seem to click between the two main characters, the movie didn't click with me. It wasn't hard to see that Eldorado was made on a low budget, but there were some beautiful shots nevertheless. Dialogue and plot were kind of inconsistent. The movie had its good and its bad moments. There were very good approaches in terms of characters, but unfortunately nothing was really deepened too much.
The word surreal came to mind, but then I made it go away. I loved the characters and there was a good mix of the comedy and drama. This was also a case where the foreshadowing did not bother me because it was poetic. It hearkened back to the early Wim Wenders road movies. “An alcoholic will steal your wallet and lie to you.
