Calvaire (Fabrice du Welz)
In a remote corner of the Ardennes, after his car breaks down, a travelling singer is put up by an innkeeper, a sex maniac who turns the musician into his cross-dressing captive. A harrowing thriller, with a searing performance by Jackie Berroyer, both comical and grotesque in his role as the torturer.
