Bullhead movie scene

Matthias Schoenaerts is Bullhead.

The 2011 Belgian crime drama Bullhead was nominated for a 2012 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Domineering cattle farmer Jacky Vanmarsenille (Matthias Schoenaerts) became reliant on steroids and hormones following a childhood trauma. After he initiates a shady deal with a notorious Mafioso meat trader, circumstances lead him down a twisted road of vengeance and torment.  When an investigating federal agent is assassinated and a woman from his horrid past resurfaces, Jacky must confront far-reaching consequences and whether the real meaning of manhood is hormonal or emotional.

Written and directed by debuting feature filmmaker Michael R. Roskam, Bullhead garnered critical acclaim at festivals around the world, including the AFI Film Festival, Berlin Film Festival, Fantasia and Fantastic Fest. It played a limited number of U.S. theaters—about 90 of them—in February, 2012 to similar kudos.

Presented in Dutch and French with English subtitles, the Bullhead Blu-ray and DVD include the following:

  • The Making Of Bullhead
  • Interview with Michaël R. Roskam
  • Interview with star Matthias Schoenaerts
  • The One Thing To Do (2005): Short Film by Roskam starring Schoenaerts
