Kongo, Belgian television art
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
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!
