Fantastic fest to serve ‘Fish’

Miike's 'Gozu' closes gory fest

BRUSSELS — Tim Burton’s “Big Fish” will open the 22nd Brussels Intl. Festival of Fantastic Film on March 12.

Fest, closing with Takeshi Miike’s Japanese pic “Gozu” on March 27, will unspool 70 titles, including 26 international or European premieres. Eleven features will vie in an international competition; 10 are competing in a Euro-only faceoff.

Highlights of the event will include Jun-Hwan Jeong’s “Save the Green Planet,” Michael Winterbottom’s “Code 46” and Kenta and Kinji Fukasaku’s “Battle Royale II.”

Fest is strong on gore, with pics like “The Green Butchers,” “The Big Slaughter Club” and “The Toolbox Murders” — directed by Tobe Hooper — all set to up the body count.

Event will also offer a retrospective of the work of George A. Romero, director of “Night of the Living Dead.”
