The Dutch title means "The woods of Flanders", referring to the rustic setting of this costume drama about the complex context of a number of murders in 19th century Belgium before, during and after the German occupation in World War I. As journalist Constant Reynaert -an outcast as 'flamingant', political opponent of the monopoly of French as official language while the Flemish majority is Dutch- is determined to bring into the open, the grim plot ties in to the dirty secrets of that period's arrogant, de facto virtually omnipotent francophone elite in this eastern part of the constitutional kingdom - the dictatorial mayor, chevalier de Bellicourt, the maritally frustrated baron de Halleux, their families (including the mayor's bastard Cesar Priem, made the town's feared cop)... who prove very good in covering it all up, even manipulating a judicial inquiry.

Smell the atmosphere of Flanders in the early 20th century
2 November 2009 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Based on true events, unsolved murders in unclear circumstances, that occurred in the first quarter of the 20th century. The story grasps the viewer's attention and drags him into the mysteries of the woods of Flanders. The plot is very intriguing. The cast is composed of the best Flemish actors, at the time and in the present. Their performance is sublime and proves, not for the first time, that they can compete internationally. The producer, director, e.d. really succeeded in creating an excellent historical image of Belgium and Flanders in the early decades of the 20th century, against the background of WW I and the interbellum, using fabulous settings and authentic clothing. Is it fiction or did events go down like this? We'll never know.
