Rijk de Gooyer,
A very good movie based on the novel (lijmen & het been) from W. Elsschot
This movie is one of the 4 great Belgian movies in 2000. The other three were 'Pauline & Paulette', 'Iedereen Beroemd' & 'Team Spirit'. There are some old Dutch legends in this movie like Willeke Van Ammelrooy, Sylvia Kristel, Jan Decleir and a cameo for Marilou Mermans. It is a very difficult story to explain but it is easy to understand the meaning of this film with a lot of flashbacks. I found the film worth to watch. There is only one problem, the ending. I had the feeling that the film wasnt ready yet, maybe there comes a sequel. I hope so!
***1/2 out of **** or 8,5/10
Worth to watch!!
