During a holiday on the Dutch rural B&B, Suske finds, while diving for Shanulleke, a black diamond. He gives it to Sidonia, who breaks her promise to proudly hold on to it after the local Baron Roger de Lacheloze offers her a hefty price. Their host Alwina tells the legend whoever profits from the stone shall perish by the next new moon. Sidonia gets sick and unable to laugh, the fatal symptom. Barabbas's time-machine sends Lambik, Alwina and the kids to the 16th century, when the legend started, at a magician's tower, to have it destroyed. They soon fall prey to feudal sorcery charges, 'solved' by fatal 'divine ordeal'. Even in they survive that, there's a mysterious black knight after them and the stone. Written by KGF Vissers

How do you like thém Apples ....... ~-^
17 November 2007 | by (Earth, Solar system) – See all my reviews

Okay, so the story was sorta iffy, and the acting so-so.

The casting of Suske and Lambik was on the edge.

Jeroms chest could easily have been simulated much better with foam or something, and he didn't have his eyes closed as he has in the books! But still ... the overall effort was very endearing.

But ... the special effects were way cool for such limited funds.

But ... Tante Sidonie's portrayal by a man turned out to be one of the good finds of this film, a gem really.

And OF COURSE, Wiske was surprisingly bumpy, and she didn't only have very ... nice (?) apples, but also something more, albeit two tiny tiny somethings .... ^-^ '-^ Her face DID, however, look exactly like the one in the book. She was clearly cast because of her likeness with the book Wiske.
