Daens: In the 1890s, Father Adolf Daens goes to Aalst, a textile town where child labor is rife, pay and working conditions are horrible, the poor have no vote, and the Catholic church backs the petite bourgeoisie in oppressing workers. He writes a few columns for the Catholic paper, and soon workers are listening and the powerful are in an uproar. He's expelled from the Catholic party, so he starts the Christian Democrats and is elected to Parliament. After Rome disciplines him, he must choose between two callings, as priest and as champion of workers. In subplots, a courageous young woman falls in love with a socialist and survives a shop foreman's rape; children die; prelates play billiards.

A Belgium masterpiece that was definitely worthy of its Oscar nomination in 1992. It's a beautifully acted, wonderfully casted, and superbly directed foreign language picture. There's not a flaw to it. This is a film that you won't soon forget, the plot is meaningful, engrossing, and also very educational. A must see. 4/5.

This is a very good movie about the proletariat during the industrialization in the Belgium history. Must have seen movie. The story is great and acting perfect. I loved it. I give this movie a 9/10.
