Great tv-series about ordinary people in Belgium from 1958 to 1995
I'm Flemish-Belgian and the tv-series is situated after the war in Antwerp. The port is developing and old villages like Oosterdonk (see title: meaning Back to Oosterdonk) have to be torn down because more space is needed for the industry. The film shows life around 1960 before the village disappeared and at the same time is about life 35 years on at the funeral of one of the protagonists, long after the village is gone. Gradually, we learn the truth about a mystery that occurred in the past and at the same time, we realize that life in Flanders, Belgium changed for good in the post-war period.
