Gripping crime drama
Nine days of the Vulture. Talent laden and shot mainly in harbour city Rotterdam in The Netherlands.
Against the backdrop of a large criminal investigation the lives of various characters involved get entangled. Meanwhile a vulture floats in the sky over the city, observing and being watched. He has his own agenda searching for his mate. Mature realistic story with superb acting of an internationally acclaimed cast. Beautiful visuals. Unsuspected intelligent twists. It raised the bar for dutch television for me. Has hardly been met so far. Only Pleidooi can be considered to have a similar quality.
