Road films usually dwell on the self-discovery stories of characters who have been lost or underdogs all their lives. But King of the Belgians is a bit different… Our protagonist, who is lost in the Balkans is His-Majesty the King of Belgium! King Nicholas III is informed that Wallonia has declared independence during his official visit to Istanbul and he is determined to go back to his country and save his kingdom. He has a lot to confront though; a solar storm, idle devices and crazy people he meets on the road. Presented as a mockumentary, this great comedy is directed by the creative duo behind The Fifth Season, Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth.
Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
