10 Geboden - Het beloofde land

Short documentary, 2000, 50 min.

John Appel chose a very unpredictable subject for the commandment You shall not kill: who is responsible when someone has been lying dead at home unnoticed for a long time? The neighbours, the relatives, the society or nobody? After coming across a newspaper article, Appel starts looking for the identity of the forsaken deceased. At first, the neighbours, peeking around the corner of the balcony of the dead man's house, even contradict each other as to what he looked like, but gradually Appel unravels a fascinating life story. He goes further and further back into the past and with a sense of humour and drama, he draws a portrait of a man who was both introverted and socially involved and who was not missed, but who did leave his marks.
