Man bites dog

Discover the greatest classic of Belgian cinema


A film crew follows a ruthless thief and heartless killer as he goes about his daily routine. But complications set in when the film crew lose their objectivity and begin lending a hand. Man Bites Dog tells the activities of rampaging, indiscriminate serial killer Ben (Benoît Poelvoorde). He is recorded by a willingly complicit documentary team, who eventually become his accomplices and active participants.
