Widely acknowledged as the most important novel written in the Dutch language since the war, and already an enormous success in Europe and America, THE SORROW OF BELGIUM is a rich, panoramic portrait of provincial life and a boy’s coming-of-age in Nazi-occupied Flanders. The script was written by novelist Hugo Claus; Claude Goretta directed among others THE LACEMAKER and THE DEATH OF MARIO RICCI.
