The man I saw coming out of this brothel is Jaco Van Dormael. What was this great director doing there? Crowned with Oscar, Camera d’Or, César, Magritte and an undying love from the public, what could he possibly be looking for in the red light district of Namur? God. And Adam, and Eve. And yes, he has found them, and has even asked them to star in his latest film, Le tout Nouveau Testament (The Brand New Testament). Deus ex lupanaris ?

L’homme que j’ai photographié sortant de ce bar à filles, c’est Jaco Van Dormael. Que fiche là le grand réalisateur ? Auréolé d’Oscar, Caméra d’Or, César, Magritte et de tout l’amour du public dont on puisse rêver, que va-t-il chercher dans les rues chaudes de Namur ? Dieu. Et Adam. Et Eve. Il les y a trouvés, pour leur donner la vedette du film qu’il est en train de tourner, "Le tout Nouveau Testament". Deus ex lupanaris ?
