Good writing, acting and filming, but goes on a bit too long.
21 March 2005 | by AdeirSee all my reviews

Overall, I found it an OK movie, but only if you are willing to follow to the end. Cinema goers with only entertainment on their mind will find it hard to stay focused. Though the story is not that complicated, writer Ward Hulselmans performed kind of the same trick as he did with the series "Stille Waters". Pose the question (what happened to the little girl?), give some clues, turn away to a different problem that has seemingly less to do with the actual plot and bringing it all together in the end. But that's fine, De Bouw and Peeters were terrific and newcomer Neuville shows some great talent. It is a pity though that the southern part of Belgium (Wallonia) has become a foreign and hostile land in the collective Flemish mind. And this film (together with Calvaire) doesn't really improve that image.
