| Almost escapes Dutch curse, but not quite
I didn't know what the film was about, so I was kinda disappointed by it, after all the hype. I'm forced to agree with everyone who dissed the romantic bits. Man, that was bad. Surely there must be SOME better romantic writers in Holland! Certainly the initial romantic scenes were awkward and clumsy, and not credible at all. Dialogue sucked big time. The comedy parts are quite good, but one gets the feeling that the actors rescued the writer here. The writing is, in general quite bad. This was a novel first? Wow, you hope the guy didn't quit his day job. Mimoun Oaïssa's expressions, mimics, language, really rescues the comedy part, and thereby, the entire film. This is remarkable in a country with a bad rep in comedy film and TV. Cabaret, that's the Dutch forté as far as comedy is concerned. But anything else ... ouch!
