“Little Boy Jesus of Flandr” movie by Gust Van den Berghe will be shown at Quinzaine-realisateurs / Festival de Cannes.
When the three beggars Suskewiet, Pitje Vogel and Schrobberbeek are tired of their poverty and hunger, they decide to sing some Epiphany on Christmas Eve. Their little plan becomes a triumph and they sing themselves rich. On the way back to the pub however, they get lost in the woods and witness the birth of Little Baby Jesus. Bedazzled by this miracle, they decide to give away all their gifts. When next year Christmas is around, they decide to sing again. But puzzled by last year experience, they start to quarrel over the gifts. Our three friends fall apart and they each go their own way.
