The Best of Dorien B.
Part of the European Perspectives Strand
From director Anke Blondé, The Best of Dorien B. is a blissful and bittersweet Belgian comedy drama with an astute and compassionate tone. Kim Snauwaert gives a standout performance as 36-year-old Dorien, a woman with a busy veterinary practice, delightful children and a successful husband. However, not everything is as rosy as it seems. Dorien’s parents are having marital problems, her husband has recently had an affair, and a trip to the hospital adds further pressure. While warm and sympathetic Dorien is a master at coping, her problems make her consider: What actually is the best of her? 
Supported by James and Morag Anderson
The Best of Dorien B. is nominated for the 2019 EIFF Audience Award.
