Fascinating !
14 March 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'De komst van Joachim Stiller' (= Dutch for 'the coming of Joachim Stiller') is a novel by the Flemish author Hubert Lampo from 1961.

'Magical realism' is this novel's keyword, a style of writing Lampo excelled in. It deals with the intrusion of the unexplainable into common, everyday's life. Setting up an atmosphere of tension and uneasiness as a consequence.

In 1976 Flemish producer Harry Kümel transferred 'De komst van Joachim Stiller' into a TV-series. Making them an instant hit in the low countries back then. A few decades later the Royal Belgian Film Institute incorporated Kümel's work in a DVD-series about great Belgian films: it is the very DVD this site is about.

Set in the lovely historical city of Antwerp, Belgium, the fascination of 'De komst van Joachim Stiller' will surely keep you watching until its very end. Its unexpected end, one may say, provided you haven't read Lampo's novel.

Have yourself carried back to the Antwerp of 1976, and surrender to the great Magical Realism of Lampo and Kümel. All set in a very low countries-style. No doubt 'De komst of Joachim Stiller' is one of the greatest films ever produced over there.
