Never, ever steal a man’s favourite hammer. That is the moral of Patrick, a mixture of deadpan hilarity and plaintive family drama that makes an auspicious feature debut from Peaky Blinders director Tim Mielants. Patrick (Kevin Janssens) is the handyman at a naturist campsite. Socially awkward and unprepossessing, he channels his passion into making meticulously hand-finished furniture. The sudden death of his father doesn’t hit him as hard as the disappearance of his trusty hammer. Who took his tool, and why, becomes an obsession. He must discover the naked truth!
