In Borgman, Flemish actor Jan Bijvoet plays Camiel Borgman, a charismatic drifter who insinuates himself into the life of a wealthy family at their villa. In no time, he manages to stoke tensions between family members and murder and death make their appearance. Is he an alien demon, the embodiment of our fears or an inconspicuous exponent of evil?
