PIERRE (1976)

The first feature film by Jan Decorte covers a day and a night in the lone life of a Brussels municipal clerk. Pierre lives with his mother in an antiquated house in a run-down working-class area. Every morning, Pierre takes the tram to his job at the town hall, where he listens to his colleagues’ jokes over the lunch break. His only hope of banishing his boredom and frustration is a girl from the gymnastics club. One evening, when his mother is out of the house, he decides to invite her into his home.
