Gilda De Bal,

I saw this movie several times. It depicts exactly what happens in a suburban village years ago. Priests were notables,almost God. Then the curtain falls. The family gathers and slowly we get to know their history and facts. Sublimely casted and acted. After all the priest is human too. Keeping up appearances could have been a working title. Claus digs deep and deeper. Excellent work from the actors. The scene when everybody gets drunk and when Carl Ridders decides to end this hypocrisy is worth waiting and watching. One of the best movies of a contemporary writer/director/artist.
