The movie is based on the book. It graphically tells a story of a couple of orphans who grew up in Flemish town at a time of which burnings in a thick dirty air of suspicion, fear and everpresent chance to get caught and tortured and killed with or without reason. The movie is enormously atmospheric, grim and realistic. It emerges the viewer in a cold unhospitable, lonely world of small, frightened, bigoted people, who are ready to tell on anybody else just to get out themselves, of highstanding cruel egoistic rich, and among this - small light sparkles of people who are able to see through the thick smoke of hate and stagnation.
Filmed in a perfectly authentic surroundings, in an old town. In the leading role is Lembit Ulfsak, who later appeared as Paganel in "Searching for captain Grant".
