| Diamant is a must see, if you like a good thriller.
Diamant was one of the last (maybe even the last) super-projects made with clearance of Mike Verdrengh & Guido De Praetere the so called 'twins' of VTM Belgian's prime commercial TV Network before they where voted out of the board.

It deserves the term super-project because it has everything you like, and would not expect from a Belgian production. Action,shooting,fighting,drama,some funny one-liners and of course some hot and steamy sex scenes too.

Very strong story based upon the book from Belgian's number one crime writer Jef Geeraerts and superb acting by Herbert Flack as the honest policeman Robbe Parain who gets involved in a case of diamond smuggling and takes the wrong decision. A decision from which he thinks it will solve all his problems,but actually it will only be the beginning of his problems when he ends up in the for outsiders so closed diamond business and finds thieves,forgers,contract killers and some real corrupt people on his path.

Flack doesn't play Robbe Parain,he just is IT !!! Also very strong acting by Jan Decleir and Karel Deruwe. For the fans of Ann Ceurvels : yes she goes naked as usual. There's also a black actor who's not listed in the cast here at IMDB and I can't remember his name, but he's so funny specially in a scene where he gets money from his cousin who works at the embassy.

Diamant is a mini series made for tv, but it's also available in an exclusive boxed movie version on VHS. Hard to find in the shops but if you're lucky you might find it. I still hope that one day they will bring out a DVD version with some extras like audio commentary. A kind of homage to the director Jean-Pierre De Decker who died two years ago, and diamant was his last big project.

Diamant is a must see, if you like a good thriller. +- 4 hours of top entertainment like they will probably never make again in Belgium. You will be nailed to your seat from the beginning till the end.
