| sharp-witted mockumentary from Flanders
Bart De Pauw is a mediocre actor who lives in the past. He has two brothers : Tom, an unpleasant small-time crook, and Benny, a fat, sensitive and deeply insecure teenager (or possibly perpetual teenager ?). Benny is the nicest one of the bunch, although one cannot shake the suspicion that he knows just how very doe-eyed and cuddly he is. One day Bart has an idea : why not star in a documentary based on his brilliant career, his delightful family, his spacious villa, his loving neighbors and his general awesomeness ? The camera crew, of course, films something else entirely.

This is the concept behind "Het geslacht De Pauw", an unusually clever comedy series about celebrities, pseudo-celebrities and the fools who want to adore, obey, study and/or abuse them. Fact and fiction are mixed in a heady satirical brew and the writing is very adroit indeed.

Many of the performances are excellent. "Tom" for instance is a superb comic creation : a rat-faced weasel who insults inoffensive passers-by, transports dubious packages and cheats on his angelic girl-friend (in later episodes, his angelic wife) as if infidelity were going out of business.

All in all, a fine series.
