Ann Petersen is the just the best actress that Belgium ever had. Also Willeke is very good!!!
Hector the previous films of Urbanus was a boxoffice hit in Belgium and in the Netherlands. So they decide to make another film with Urbanus with a great belgian cast: -Bea Van der Maath: in her first role,
-Willeke Van Ammelrooy; known from "Turks Fruit" , "Antonia" & the recent "Lijmen/ het been". Did a good job like always
-Herbert Flack: known from "Thuis" , "Olivetta 82" & Hector was the angry model Orlando
-Jan Decleir: known for "Daens" , Antonia & the mini serie "Stille Waters" was the brother of Urbanus in this film.
-And last but not least Ann Petersen: in Belgium they say she is the biggest actress that she is the biggest actress that we ever had. She made history in theater & in great belgian films. *Pauline & Paulett *Manneke Pis *"Thuis"...
She is around 70 and we hope she will continue as long as she could.
This film was also a box office hit, and it was worth seeing, again after Hector, there is a new belgian masterpiece!
