This is an 13-episodes series made for television with the best Belgian actors of the moment: Koen De Bouw, Antje De Boeck, Jo De Meyere, Nand Buyl,... and of course our Belgian pride Jan Decleir. It has a good story, great acting and some very actual themes (without getting into details and revealing the story). Jan Decleir is very good although his part was rather small. Koen De Bouw showed us some great acting but I liked Jo De Meyere's performance the most! What a talent, really outstanding! This 3 male actors I just mentioned are also in THE Belgian movie of 2004: "De Zaak Alzheimer". It is something completely different, but it does prove the fact that we have some brilliant acting and directing talent in our small country.
If you haven't seen "Stille Waters" yet, you should definitely see it the next time when it is on TV because it is some of the better mini-series we had in Belgium the past 10-years. It was released in the same period as "Veel geluk, professor" but it is much better (although they aren't really comparable because "Veel geluk, professor" has more a romantic-comedy story).
