HUMAN PRIEST
2 August 2003 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Hugo Claus is probably the most respected Belgian novelist ever and the man did it a bit of everything, and so he also is a director with "De Leeuw Van Vlaanderen" and "Vrijdag" being his most popular ones. For those who know Claus, they might know that for Claus nothing is holy, even not the Catholic church. The movie is based on his own novel "Omtrent Deedee" that tells the story of a priest Deedee who is among his believers a well respected Christian man but once he's among his own four walls he's facing the problems every human being is. "Het sacrament" tells the story of 24 hour as Deedee organises a yearly familyreunion and every personage has his own typical problems. A man who must obey his dominant wife every second, a woman who wants to jump in bed with every man she sees, a woman who believes so much in God that it becomes a pathetic, a man who must borrow his sister to give him a proper coat, you name it and you'll find in "Het sacrament". But all by all it's not such a good picture as the movie is a bit too much like a theatreplay and tons of good actions are spoiled by the neurotic Claude (played by Carl Ridders, a man who is overaécting so much it is annoying) even if that character is a bit the red line in the whole story. For the rest of the acting you see nothing but topquality with Frank Aedenboom (why is this man only to see in a terrible soap these days?) and Jan Decleir as the Robert DeNiro's of Belgium...
