Saffron Hill Films, a Peccadillo Pictures company, will release a Double Play edition of Belgian director Bavo Defurne's film Noordzee, Texas a.k.a North Sea Texas (2011), starring Ben Van den Heuvel, Eva van der Gucht, Mathias Vergels, Katelijne Damen, and Thomas Coumans. The preliminary release date set by the company is February 10, 2014.
Bavo Defurne helms this coming-of-age drama set in a small town on the Belgian coast. Jelle Floorizoone stars as Pim, a lonely gay teenager who lives with his neglectful accordionist mother Yvette (Eva van der Gucht). Pim often finds comfort at the home of his 'second mum', Yvette's co-worker Marcella (Katelijne Damen), where he harbours an unrequited passion for her slightly-older son, motorbike enthusiast Gino (Mathias Vergels). When Gino starts a relationship with a French girl, jealous Pim transfers his passion onto Zoltan (Thomas Coumans), a handsome young fairground worker who is renting a room in his house. Unfortunately for Pim, however, Yvette has also fixated on Zoltan as a way out of their dead-end town.
