Ne Me Quitte Pas

An off-the-wall crowd-pleaser.

Published on May 13, 2014


Male friendship, depression and alcoholism are the key themes of the surprisingly uplifting Beligium documentary Don't Leave Me (Ne me quitte pas). Bob is a retired cowboy who loves his freedom and the forest, while Marcel is desperately trying to keep his family together.

There's not a lot to do in the Belgian countryside. Fortunately, there’s wood to be chopped and sticky flypaper to be hung; and there are the occasional trips to the dentist. The remaining time is killed with drinking and banter. An off-the-wall crowd-pleaser.
