Great film based on a wonderful book
17 June 2001 | by howitzer2001See all my reviews

"Jan zonder Vrees" was a very well-known series of books in Flanders about a young and fearless young man who crossed 15th century Western Europe, helping people who suffer from the social injustice in those days.

This movie, based on the first book from the series written by Constant De Kinder, features Jan who has to flee Antwerp because he is accused of murder after he killed his nephew Tijs by accident. On his way he encounters many dangers, which he all faces without any fear. This movie looks very cartoonish, which is very refreshing and adds a lot to the humor in the film, but the thing I like most about it is the wonderful story, although it had to be shortened to fit in a 78 min. movie. Especially at the end, everything goes a little too fast. As almost always, the book is better than the film, but that doesn't mean it is bad at all. See it if you can, and certainly read the book, if you can get it in your language (it's mainly for children, but I think everyone will enjoy it).
