Ben X

A film by Nic Balthazar

2007 Belgium - Drama


Ben is different. His life is full of strange rituals. He seems to live in his own universe, more than half of which exists in the world of online gaming. The real, hard world of life at a technical school is a daily hell for him with two guys who almost literally harass the life out of him. Ben has a plan. A plan that can be summed up in one word: murder! But then his internet girlfriend Scarlite enters his life. This was not a part of his original plan.
