A real fine mystery about a journalist named Freek who gets a letter one day. Now everybody gets letters everyday so not worth making a movie of this subject you think now. Strange thing is that the letter was posted more then 20 years before Freek was born. How could someone know where Freek should live more then 20 years later as a grown up ? Then more strange things happen,and one name is always returning : 'Joachim Stiller' Who is he ? What's his mission ? Is he an enemy or a friend ? Freek wants to know who that Joachim Stiller is and starts searching.

'De komst van Joachim Stiller' (= Dutch for 'the coming of Joachim Stiller') is a novel by the Flemish author Hubert Lampo from 1961.

'Magical realism' is this novel's keyword, a style of writing Lampo excelled in. It deals with the intrusion of the unexplainable into common, everyday's life. Setting up an atmosphere of tension and uneasiness as a consequence.

Set in the lovely historical city of Antwerp, Belgium, the fascination of 'De komst van Joachim Stiller' will surely keep you watching until its very end. Its unexpected end, one may say, provided you haven't read Lampo's novel.

Have yourself carried back to the Antwerp of 1976, and surrender to the great Magical Realism of Lampo and Kümel. All set in a very low countries-style. No doubt 'De komst of Joachim Stiller' is one of the greatest films ever produced over there.
