The title is difficult to translate because it is in fact a non-existing word. Turn the W 180° and it becomes an M. Waan becomes Maan, meaning Moon. The phases of the Moon we all know. But the Moon influences the mental stability of people by creating illusions. Illusions can be translated in Flemish as Waan, but the Flemish 'waanzin' must be translated as 'madness'.
