"Moreover, you scorned our people, and compared the Albanese to sheep, and according to your custom think of us with insults. Nor have you shown yourself to have any knowledge of my race. Our elders were Epirotes, where this Pirro came from, whose force could scarcely support the Romans. This Pirro, who Taranto and many other places of Italy held back with armies. I do not have to speak for the Epiroti. They are very much stronger men than your Tarantini, a species of wet men who are born only to fish. If you want to say that Albania is part of Macedonia I would concede that a lot more of our ancestors were nobles who went as far as India under Alexander the Great and defeated all those peoples with incredible difficulty. From those men come these who you called sheep. But the nature of things is not changed. Why do your men run away in the faces of sheep?"
Letter from Skanderbeg to the Prince of Taranto ▬ Skanderbeg, October 31 1460

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1286784/
Dossier K. ( Dosja e Kanunit)

Vincke and Verstuyft are detectives of the Antwerp police department. This time they have to deal with the Albanian mob and some problems in their own police division.

This is a movie about two Albanian family's from North-Albania ( Shkoder) being in blood with each other. This story is played part in Albania and part in Belgium. The movie is actually an adaption of a book written by a Belgian writer.
It's been in production for almost 5 years now and got a green light to start filming in january 2009.
The film will be released in theaters by October 2009 here in Belgium. But will have an international distribution for American and foreign cinema's in the beginning of january 2010.

The leading actor will be Blerim Destani he will be playing one of the Shehu family who will be coming to Belgium to take revenge on the Gaba family, but during he's stay he also falls in love with a Belgian girl who happens to be the head prosecutor's daughter.
This is the same actor that also played in Time of the Comet.

I got a chance to be at two different sets watching it being filmed because of a friend of mine and i can say it will be a very good film.

The teaser trailer on youtube :

Beneath are some set pictures that they took during filming.

That's a good movie. Now I can understand that 5 years of filming made that quality.
