Two thick-headed lifelong pals stumble through a town where nearly everyone is as stupid as they are. Jean-Claude is a loud-mouthed, know-it-all and full time boor who is best friends with Stef, a self-styled lady killer who would do better with the fairer sex if he could work up the ambition to wake up in the morning. Stef has decided that despite his lofty ambitions, he may need some help in finding the woman of his dreams, and embracing loyalty rather than logic he turns to Jean-Claude for advice. As Jean-Claude explains his deeply flawed techniques for impressing women, he and Stef cross the paths of a handful of local eccentrics, including a perpetual mugging victim, a misguided school teacher, a sex crazed nymphomaniac, a short-tempered bad cop, a wealthy spoiled brat, and a slaughter house manager.
Dikennek is a fun offbeat Belgian cult comedy featuring an amazing cast including two French actresses who are now making a big splash in Hollywood, Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds) and Marion Cotillard (Public Enemies, Inception), extremely ridiculous characters and equally ridiculous dialogue.
