Belgian director Christophe Van Rompy helms the frenetic romantic comedy Aanrijding in Moscou. This farce opens with a seemingly calamitous turn of events when 29-year-old professional truck driver Johnny (Jurgen Delnaet) accidentally slams his rig into a car in the middle of a supermarket parking lot. Lo and behold, the car happens to belong to 41-year-old homemaker Matty (Barbara Sarafian), prompting a nasty fight between the two. In the middle of the argument, however, Johnny becomes unshakably convinced that Matty is his dream girl and determines to win her for himself -- despite the fact that she is married.

Enjoyable romantic drama - kind of a comedy (at times).

Barbara Sarafian is excellent as lead middle-aged female torn between wandering husband and younger new trucker amour.

Interesting to hear Dutch dialect spoken for a couple hours, too.

This Belgian comedy follows the life of a modern housewife in Moscow, Belgium as she is pursued by a younger man to the consternation of her philandering husband and the amusement of her teenage daughter. It is set in a modern working class suburb and provides an interesting neo realist view of family life in this milieu. It was only occasionally funny to me, but it is quirky.
