Kongo, Belgian television art

8/10
Author: jeroenstubbe from Belgium
8 November 2006

First of all, it is a Belgian production starring classical Belgian actors who we see in many other Television programs and films of Belgian origin. Many of the actors have played roles in films like 'De Zaak Alzheimer' (wich is translated in English to ' the Memory of a Killer')

Why named Kongo? Because Kongo is how we called that colony in the 19-20th century, pretty obvious I guess. I gave 9 out of 10 because it gives a true sight on the history of the Belgian colony, this happens through eyes off colonists. It gives a realistic view of the oppression in African country's by European nations.

The best reason for being unknown is that the mini-series is played in dutch. Although with English subtitles I think that it would be well worth the time to watch it.

Even with this short review I have one conclusion: Good Belgian television is too unknown for its quality! Bravo!
