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 »
First thing that I've noticed: this story is completely incomprehensible if you did not read the comic-book! The story is told in a very amateurish way, which makes it sometimes difficult to follow. Of course: if you have read the book, you can fill in the missing parts. If you haven't read the book: good luck in trying to understand the story.
Or let's say the details in the story.
This is really a pity since the actors are doing a great job. Especially Stany Crets as Jerommeke is great!
Another complaint: I have never seen such unprofessional rubbish on a DVD as extra. Not much extra on the DVD, only the making of. first 10 minutes are great and you can have a look behind the scenes. But then you as spectator are treated on a movie-clip which I only can describe as some kind of camcorder record: a 3 minutes shot of a door ?? Shots filmed when the camera was supposed to be switched off (so, you see floor and ceiling). This made my DVD experience quite special I must see ;-)
conclusion: the actors did a great job, even the special effects and decors were OK. Unfortunately a bad director and bad cut totally kills this movie experience. If you have the DVD there is an unforgettable "extra" which is so bad, one have to see it to believe it.
