In a modest apartment above a bakery in Kapelle-op-den-Bos. Lives there Jean-Pierre Van Rossem (73) today. There is no lift in the building. There is no Ferrari for the door. No Porsche, no Jaguar, not even BMW. There is now, however, a tv maker, on the sofa in the living room.
That tv-maker called Peter Boeckx, you will know him of Four programs if The show must go on (about Flemish schlagerzangers), The sky is The limit (rich paljassen), and maybe some of …
That tv-maker called Peter Boeckx, you will know him of Four programs if The show must go on (about Flemish schlagerzangers), The sky is The limit (rich paljassen), and maybe some of The gang Haemers and maybe even of his work for the Walloon reportagemagazine Striptease.
Boeckx’ youngest tv work is characterized by a blown adoration for everything to wealth, extravagance and glamour smells like. That trait, he is not yet kwijtgespeeld. While Van Rossem in the living room on the sofa of a dry sausage see (and hear) pieces, recited Boeckx in the voice-over: ‘he was Once owner of seven castles, a megajacht, privéjets and even a Formula 1 team.’
In Van Rossem gets Boeckx together with Flanders ‘ most famous con man herinningen on his ‘flamboyant and rich life. Van Rossem recovers in the meantime, a medical surgery on his leg. We see him laboriously up the stairs riding up the walls, or in the office, take a nap. Van Rossem is an old man.
Boeckx has old acquaintances invited those memories may come to get that ‘fashionable’ years Of Rossems life. And so go in the living room cars, pitspoezen and legendary zuipavonden lustig about the reeds – there’s a lot of stoerdoenerij in this program.
The question is whether it is kosher to have a program like this to worry about Jean-Pierre Van Rossem, a man whose greatest merit is that he is a pyramid scheme a whole series of gold diggers hope money has made. Can you, as a man still boast, to swagger, guts and big mouth?
But look, Boeckx is in any case is more critical than we are used from him. So he asked a former student, or Van Rossem a fabulous, while there is still sits. Or he port Jan Van Rompaey softly to Van Rossem a sympathetic villain to call it – we remember the word ‘crook’. Only halfway through the second episode – which we all could see – may, investigative journalist Ludwig Verduyn the witwascaroussel of Van Rossem come to explain. Then crackles again as the olden days. Because then comes the real hot-air balloon of Moneytron over again. And that syringe the typical expletives in your language in the round. With his big mouth.
Of Rossem. Tuesday at 20: 35 hours on Four.
