Allez, Eddy!

Synopsis: The eleven year old cycling talent Freddy is the son of a butcher in an idyllic village in no man's land. His isolated life is turned upside down completely in 1975 when the first supermarket in the village opens its doors. To mark the opening the supermarket organizes a cycling race and the winner of that match will meet Eddy Merckx. Freddy's father is a fervent opponent of the supermarket and the competition, but Freddy subscribes behind his back. By participating in the race a new world opens, not only for Freddy, but also for all those around him.

I wouldn't mind seeing this big shop.

Just take a look.

It sounds fascinating.


Go on back to your room,

you strange boy.

Or you'll get something fascinating

round your ears.

Go on.

Come on.

That's a good idea,

your bike up in the air, eh?

Why is that supermarket

such a bad thing?

Go to sleep now.

Eddy Merckx breaks away.

The others can't keep up.

No one is strong enough.

Aunt Marjet!

- Here they are.

Hello, sweethearts.

I've brought lots of presents.

Come and see what I've brought.

Come and see. Take it all out.

Take it with you.

Take it inside. I'm coming.


So many presents!

- From Aunt Marjet.


Put them on the table.

Hello, sister-in-law.

You're wearing such bright colours.

You've become a nun after all?

Your mum will be proud.

She always wanted a nun in the family.

Look who it is. My little brother.

Take your apron off, it's Sunday.

Hi, aunt.

- Briek. Don't get blood all over me.

Good morning to you too.


Where's my little man? There he is!

My precious boy.

Will you come up to my room later?

- Yes, I'll come up to your room.

Go on then. See you later.

- Yeah.

Where are...

Where are you, girls?

That's a lovely colour.

- Yes, that's true.

That's nice. That's it.

- But that's too long.

We haven't looked at this catalogue yet.

I want that one.

- Me too.

Thought so. Even Princess Astrid

hasn't got one like that.

And she's got more money than us.

Here, Marjet, that's for the dresses.

It's my present for

your silver wedding anniversary, Angel.

I can't...

- Put it away.

No, Marjet, no way.

We'll pay for it ourselves.

You need this money, little brother.

- I'll buy my kids' clothes myself.

She wants to give them a present.

They'll be delivered to my house

in two weeks.
