Het Dwaallicht (Will O' the Wisp) is a 1973 Belgian film directed by Frans Buyens, based on the better-known novel of the same name by Willem Elsschot.

Plot

Not much is known about the plot of the film. It follows an old man who is discontented with his family life and spends his evening wandering around Antwerp's red-light district. One evening, three sailors approach him and ask for his help to find a certain girl, who seems to be non-existent[1].

Availability

Little else is known about the film apart from the cast and producer[2]. Information about the film is next to non-existent. Very few images related to the film can be found on the internet. As of today, no physical copy of the DVD release has resurfaced and the film has never been redistributed in any other form.

Maybe a little unrelated, but I found this talk about the film https://www....llicht-1973/. Maybe someone who knows Dutch can find something helpful from the talk.

I happen to be Dutch, to sum up what has been discussed:

The hosts were talking about the history of Belgian cinema and regarding to the movie, they talked a bit about the plot, some of the cast and the soundtrack. But the most helpful part is that they mentioned the movie can be streamed at UniversCine.be though it is only available to the Belgian audience.

Whoever edited the page,

It is found, you are right about that. But Tyrozaphy just translated the Belgian article into English and said that it could be found on this website. He didn't actually found it, the people who worked on the website found it

I edited the page. I misunderstand the meaning of who can be credited for something being Found which is a mistake of my own. I'm glad you edited and changed aspects, then UniversCine indeed holds the title of founder.

Date found is indeed unknown as they don't mention that when adding films.
