Ratings & Reviews

  1. Slappy McGee's rating of the film Illegal

    Intense. Extremely well acted and tightly wound narrative about an illegal immigrant in Belgium fighting not to be deported. Anne Coesens is a FORCE to be reckoned with: at once powerful and yet utterly vulnerable. Such a magnificent performance. This film is as sad as it is infuriating... and doesn't offer simple answers. The writer/director does not shy away from the harsh reality of this extremely difficult issue.

  2. Tania Ahmadi's rating of the film Illegal

    A very powerful film portraying the brutally hideous behavior towards illegals. Incredibly flawless acting by Anne Coesens.

  3. Test's rating of the film Illegal

  4. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Illegal

    IMMIGRATION Part 2. Il n'y a ni biélorusses ni russes à Molenbeek ni à Schaerbeek. Désinformation, manipulation & propagande pour pleurer dans les chaumières & promouvoir notre culpabilité vis à vis des immigrés. Tout ça va se terminer avec la perte de nos pays & nos valeurs. == No Belarusian nor Russian in Molenbeek nor in Schaerbeek. Disinformation, manipulation & propaganda to promote our guilt against immigrants.

  5. bennievermeer's rating of the film Illegal

    'Illégal', a furious indictment of the Belgian asylum system, lays bare a highly sensitive and seemingly insoluble issue in the whole EU - which is at heart not a judicial or political but a moral problem. Read my full review:

  6. Matt Richards's rating of the film Illegal

    Powerful and timely emotional drama here for the life of an 'illegal' immigrant locked up in detention while trying to start a new life in Belgium. The film follows the hardship and fear that are constants for someone living without an identity. Really nicely shot and and a standout performance from the lead Anne Coesens. 4 stars
