Yvan, a middle-aged classic car collector, arrives home one evening to find Elie, a skinny young junkie, robbing his apartment. In a moment of sympathy, Yvan agrees to drive Elie to his parents' house in his vintage Chevrolet. So begins this absurdist but affecting road movie, awarded the Cannes Film Festival FIPRESCI prize, that follows these two on a bizarre journey across the spectacular Belgian landscape.

Director & Cast




  • "A funny and melancholy road picture [full of] weird and wonderful characters."
    Ray Bennett, Film Journal International
  • "Writer-director Bouli Lanners’s tale ... has all the hallmarks of our own homegrown odes to two-lane blacktops."
    Time Out New York
  • "The beauty of the cinematography adn the wonderous music...packs an emotional wallop."
    Jen Johans, Film Intuition
  • "CRITIC'S PICK. In “Eldorado,” a road movie that poignantly juggles absurdism and melancholy, the summertime landscape of the Wallonia region of Belgium is filmed to resemble a miniaturized American West."
    Stephen Holden, The New York Times
