"The Twelve" - good court drama

This Belgian/Dutch miniseries has plenty to offer. I like movies, coming from that part of the world - they tend to be somewhat above average, and this one is no exception.

Court/jury dramas can be riveting, and The Twelve delivers in that regard. But two things deserve special mention.

One - their system of justice is quite different from outs, so it is educational to see it in action. I presume the movie accurately portrays the way their system works. There are some major differences with the US one.

And two... there is no simple answer. In fact, the movie leaves you gasping for one... but not finding it. And that is perhaps its strongest point - real life situations tend to be more complicated than the simple black/white division.

All in all, a very rewarding show.
