The film reunites Van Rompaey with Belgium actress Barbara Sarafian, the star of the director's Moscow, Belgium, which launched at Cannes Critics' Week in 2008 and was a sleeper sales hit.

Vincent and the End of the World stars newcomer Spencer Bogaert as the 17-year-old Vincent, who makes several unsuccessful suicide attempts to protest global warming. Sarafian plays his exasperated mother, while French actress Alexandra Lamy (Ricky) plays his French aunt who is convinced a road trip away from his family will cure Vincent. But the teenager proves more than she can handle.

Geert Van Rampelberg of The Broken Circle Breakdown co-stars. The film, co-produced by A Private View, Les Enrages and Les Films de la Croisade, is set to wrap May 27.
