It is still a half year to wait until the premiere, but director Stijn Coninx has already made the first, hard images unloaded from his long-awaited Gang of Nijvel-film.
Don’t shoot, as the film will be called, is based on the book by journalists Annemie Bulté and David From the Stone. He lost his parents and sister on november 9, 1985 during a robbery of the Gang of Nivelles on the Delhaizefiliaal in Aalst, belgium and was himself seriously wounded. The story is told from the point of view of his grandfather, Albert, played by Jan Decleir. The film mainly shows David a rehabilitation and Albert’s long search for justice.
Stijn Coninx has seven years in the film worked. “Entertainment is not told Coninx there earlier on in Knack Focus. “The victims of the Gang must have a voice and a face. Perhaps there may be something in motion. Don’t shoot is a cry for help, a cry of indignation.’
“Until today, the victims of the Gang-brutaliteiten no answers received, they have no grip. That can not, certainly not in a rule of law as Belgium. The research is never taken seriously, the victims and their relatives, either. Hallucinatory, just on the edge of criminal. That one out of the sky continues to fall, also about the ‘revelations’ of the last few months, that I can not grasp.’
Jan Decleir get Viviane De Muynck next to him, who is the grandmother of the Stone composition. David Of the Stone is played by three different actors: the former passages for the brothers Mo and Kes Baker, Jonas van Geel, take the mature character for his account.
The film appears on 10 October in the cinema.
