Van Damme muscles Spago

Muscles from Brussels is Belgium's 'biggest'

Belgium got the Hollywood treatment Thursday when Miramax screened “Everybody’s Famous!” at the Aidikoff with a dinner afterward at Spago.

Headlining the nosh was Jean-Claude Van Damme about whom Consul-General Frank Geerkens said, “In terms of Belgium movie talent, he’s the biggest.” For his part, the Muscles from Brussels said his countrymen have “some good filmmakers for the number of people in the country – seven million.”

Star Thekla Reuten said “Famous!” deserved its best foreign Oscar nom because director Dominique Deruddere’s film “doesn’t become a cynical satire although it does have a critical view on the power of television today.

Among those dining were Wes Craven, Marianne Maddalena, Bruce Wagner, Frank Gilardi and Avi Lerner.
