The crisis of masculinity subgenre gets reworked in this one-of-a-kind documentary, which follows, with surprising humility and hilarity, the downward spiral of two Belgian farmers’ mid-life crises. Left by his wife for another man, Marcel falls into a deep depression and alcoholism, with only his friend Bob, also an alcoholic, to look after him. Ne Me Quitte Pas is a tender, funny, and disturbing examination of the fragile male ego. Set against the beautifully photographed Belgian landscape, Dutch filmmakers Sabine Lubbe Bakker & Niels van Koevorden deliver an unforgettable portrayal of the true meaning of friendship.
