In the middle of nowhere lies the little Dutch village: Barslet. The only strange thing about the village seems to be the name, which means "bar slut" in Dutch. But there is also a different interpretation of the name. "Bars" means "unfriendly" in Dutch and "let" is medieval Dutch for "people". So Barslet means "unfriendly people". Barslet seems to be an ordinary and peaceful village. But if you believe that, you're mistaken. Within a short period of time the villagers are shaken up by lots of strange events: a pyromaniac terrorizes the village, a boy dies in mysterious circumstances, a child seems to be able to predict the future, and to the amazement of everyone, living fish fall out of the sky on the village square. In the 7 episodes of the television series the viewer sees the same sequence of events, but each time through the eyes of a different villager. In this way the viewer learns more about the reasons for the strange events, but each answer also leads to new questions. Written by anonymous

User Reviews

Very clever written, great acting and a beautiful setting
29 July 2013 | by DarkLordDiaperSee all my reviews

After seeing this complete series, i was blown away. I really felt excited about how the story onfolds a little further with each episode.

In the first few episodes there a quitte a lot of things unclear, but that just makes you want to watch the next episode immediately. As the series goes further some things become clear, but it will also raise new questions, that makes it very exciting throughout all the episodes. So for that I want to praise the writers.

The actors that have been chosen for this series are very well casted, you really can read the emotions they have from their faces, even if they don't say a word. This shows that they are enough great Dutch actors available in such a small country.

The setting of this series also works very well, the little village is very recognisable, it really fells like that type of little village where everybody knows everything about each other. That really makes it feel more realistic and believable.

For me this is one of the best Dutch series, thanks to a very interesting storyline, great acting and a very well chosen setting.
