Gerard Depardieu to join 2800 other French emigres in Belgium
Galt's Gulch in bucolic Belgium town of Nechin by Clifford F. Thies The great French actor Gerard Depardieu has signaled au revoir to President Hollande and his socialist taxes. He will be relocating to Nechin, Belgium, joining a growing list of wealthy emigres. Depardieu's best work was his lead role in "Cyrano", for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for best actor, an extremely rare nomination for a non-English language film. Americans may remember him best for his role in the movie "Green Card", for which he won the Golden Globe for best actor. But, "Green Card" is merely a light romantic comedy; you only see glimpses of Depardieu's talent. And, so, another "man of the mind," this one a performer, leaves the socialist paradise and its scum of mediocrity, the cretins, the envious, the power-lusters and the moochers whom they milk for votes. Good riddance! In this case, Galt's Gulch is the picturesque Belgium town of Nechin. Follow the link for webcam, and see what it's like for Frenchmen who "Go Galt" in this town.
