The fifth part of The sex life of the Belgians tells the story of a man who refuses to or who cannot make love to women who smell strongly of fish. Returning to his native village Harelbeke and then to Ostend, film maker Bucquoy reflects on his aims as an artist and film director. “I’m fed up with making films for some hundred people. This time we’re going to be real machos.” Without pretence the anarchist film maker positions himself outside the canonical moral standard, creating a self-willed cinema that relates excessive sexual fantasies to an amorphous philosophy and meta-statements on the essence of film and film-making itself.
