A Film by Daniel De Valck

- Producer -

Synopsis
This is a film about the conversations that waft around us like smoke in a café. About ineffectual words that nobody heeds, uttered by an holder generation who represent a large portion of the population in our cities today. This film takes a look at a generation just starting to emerge : a generation of dynamic and concerned retirees. In their confiding tones- between two errands in Brussels streets, in the smart tea-rooms of the beaux quartiers,or in the eateries of the city's less affluent neighbourhoods - we hear them sum up or enlarge upon the day's events with all savour of the good Belgian cooking.
