Worst Belgian movie ever...

We had to see this movie as a part of our class Dutch because for some reason the writers of the handbook we use seem to find this a great movie. Without giving spoilers I can tell you I was not the only one in class who almost felt asleep during the screening. The story is weak, predictable and slow. The acting is poor, even Charlotte Vandermeersch who's a very talented actress is not convincing in this movie. The Balci brothers should both take acting and directing classes in my opinion before they even think about making another movie. I'am a huge supporter of Belgian movies, and normally I'am almost never negative about them, but Turquaze is really an exception. This is probably the worst movie ever made in Belgium. Even The Pencil Murders from Guy Lee Thys is a better movie and that was a real bad movie. Some people might like this movie, but I certainly didn't.
