Synopsis From the sketch of Coluche “Les Belges” in 1979 to the TV sets of Canal Plus starring Stromae, François Damiens or Stéphane de Groot, something has changed. For the french, the Belgian, in thirty years, has moved from moron to hipster trendy, funny and ultra frequentable. What happened? How did the Belgian, this ridiculous cousin, become the influencer of trends and reservoir of talents of a France formerly so prompt to ignore its french-speaking neighbors? Marc Ball and Gilles Dal led the investigation. The results are … surprising!
