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
In the opening sequence of the movie, when our heroes drive off in their jeep to their holiday destination, they drive past a street party. One of the extras at this party looks like Willy Vandersteen, the creator of Suske & Wiske. See more »
I just just finished minutes ago my second or third screening of this picture.
As a french reader, I know the series as Bob et Bobette. I have not read any episodes in many years but still, I could recognize each character easily.
The story is not that fantastic but like someone said,it was probably chosen because easy to put on the screen. As for the characters, I am more than pleased on what I saw on the screen.
Obviously, great care have been put into the casting as the actors are quite similar to the heroes they represent. Impossible to confuse who is who ! Simply amazing ! Their mannerisms, facial expressions, strange habits...etc have not been forgotten. For example, Lambique(Lambik) lighting a candle, to later realize in great pain that it was his own thumb ! Hilarious !
Of course, you need to be a great fan of the series to truly appreciate it for what it was. Random viewers won't get many jokes and essence of several characters.
Thumbs-up to everyone involved in the film !
