Besides being a well known film maker in Belgium (and the USA, see The Loft), Erik van Looy also hosts the immensely popular television show 'De Slimste Mens ter Wereld' (The smartest person in the world). See more »
In Belgium, the rear license plate is the 'official' one from the DMV (DIV in Dutch). This is visible through a mark on the plate. This is never visible on the Volvo XC90 with license plate A2, indicating this is a copy and not a real one. See more »
My girlfriend (43 years) left the movie (crying) around minute 43 (I can be more specific about the fragment, if needed, but I supported her by leaving together). She couldn't anymore make the difference between "reality and fiction". Before you shall say "Your poor Belgian people", see the movie and evaluate it. Although I have to say that "some special moments" are typical for our Country (which I love = those fragments :-). Therefore I went a second time without her, to watch the whole scene. This is contributed to the "regisseur Erik Van Looy". Before the end of my 10 lines of text, which are needed for your "automatic machine" to cope with my "humble opinion", I shall produce more inappropriate text, like "this movie was sponsored by our government for 5 mio euro's", which is also the budget for 1 moment of a typical soap series... The main actor (Koen De Bouw) declared that the most difficult part of 56 days of takes, was to be believed in his anxiousness. Also therefore, my girlfriend left the movie at half :-) René Steurs, out of Belgium.
