The Extraordinary Life of Rocky
Directed by Kevin Meul • 2010 • Belgium
It seems Rocky was born on the wrong side of luck; all the people he loves die from a fatal accident. First his father, then his grandfather and every single time Rocky is at the center of it all. He is like a magnet for misfortune. Rocky's mom is bitter because she loses her husband and dad. She's unable to comfort Rocky because she is not capable of dealing with her own grief. Celine's cold attitude makes Rocky believe he's the cause of all their misery. It's with these delusional ideas that he grows older. Luckily, Rocky meets Angie, the love of his life. But Angie has her own problems...
