Menuet is a 1982 Belgian-Dutch drama film directed by Lili Rademakers. The film was selected as the Belgian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 55th Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.
A young husband and wife live at close quarters in a small industrial town, where he works in the basement of a brewery, but she has designs on moving up in the world. The husband is fixated on keeping clippings of news stories about bizarre crimes and accidents - stories that are visually portrayed alongside the ordinary family dynamics. Aside from the young couple, a 14-year-old girl is there to help out with the household chores, and her detached spying on all covert activities (she observes the wife being raped by the brother-in-law) has a chilling undertone. Meanwhile, the morbid side of the husband draws him to the 14-year-old, and desires that had been dormant begin to surface. The couple, their relatives, and the domestic certainly seem trapped in a labyrinth that has no end.
Movie was based on the book "Menuet en andere verhalen" written by the Flemish novellist Louis Paul Boon, on which book the movie Daens (1992) was also based.
