Toto the Hero

Jaco Van Dormael

This heartwarming story of Thomas, an old man living in his imagination, will make you laugh and cry. Memories, desires and reality start to interlock, to result in this deliberately surreal tale. Jaco Van Dormael makes us relive childhood and gives us a glimpse of old age and death. The film was greatly acclaimed, and won the Camera d’Or in Cannes in 1991, giving the entire Belgian film industry a new boost.
