Now that you know that it is a Dutch word meaning what it does?
Knowing that that meaning is fully consistent with what we see happening?
Knowing about the similarity between "wiek" and "wick", thus having etymology confirm it?
And knowing (most important) that the man in the film clearly said "wiek"?
You're being too cautious, really!
Oh, and knowing that a Zuid-Nederlander recognizes and understands the word without having to look it up?
