I am inclined to agree with Karlomans observations concerning the credibility of the story. Make believe is a strange art, isn't it? Lying the truth. I don't mind the absence of the regional dialect it would rather be a preposterous thing although Flemish drama is invaded by regional speech (Antwerp dialect) which gives it immediately a hideous smell of 'soap'. I feel we once and again failed an opportunity to make the real thing, something larger than life ( which is of course the nature of drama). I fear Katarakt wont have a second chance to make a first impression.... It is not only a question of talent, which we have in stock, but a strive for quality.
