Media Satire and Pervasive Humour

With the simple premise of a small documentary crew closely following the antics of a serial killer, “Man Bites Dog” takes the category of mocumentary filmmaking to a whole new level. We follow Ben (Benoit Poelvoorde, who also produces and co-directs), a charismatic and yet highly dangerous psychopath, who is the subject of a documentary shot by Rémy (Rémy Belveux, who serves as a director and editor for the film) and André (André Bronzel, who’s also the cameraman for the film). We are drawn into Ben’s life, his family, his friends, his everyday habits, but just when we think he is a regular human being albeit with some very dark humour, his actions turn to ultra-violence and his rationalization of them makes it all the more disturbing and yet strangely satisfying at the same time.

"I like to try out new work methods" and "I believe in sharing, no problem." from Ben. a film about film-making with limited budget, it also portrays societies pitfalls, camaraderie, change and how violence plays a part in everyday lif...
