Cheap and dirty, but not in a good way
Every now and then I lose myself in buying some dirt cheap DVDs, and this time it happened to be 'I love Dries'. It stars Dutch B-class celebrities who luckily do not take themselves too seriously, while controversial Tom Six of Human Centipede fame happens to be the director. So it definitely had something going for it, but don't be fooled as this is a real stinker!!!
Our perfectly healthy and fit Dries Roelvink is unable to flee a trailer, or outrun his overweight captor. So he gives in and makes love to a very unattractive woman repeatedly because she wants a child from him. Nobody seems to be missing Dries, not even the police who off course DO recognize him when stopping them over towards the end. And Dries just lets them get away with it too.
During the events we are subjected to lots of filth and general bad taste, adding nothing to the story besides putting you off. Picture quality and sound are also terrible, I estimated the production cost at 8.95 which is about the price of a 3-pack VHS tapes nowadays. It was quite a bit more, might be it had something to do with the master tape being stolen for some time.
We would actually have been far better off if the tape had stayed missing, but I made a start by safely locking away my copy so it can do no more harm. A well deserved 1 out of 10 stars and to be avoided like a heap of dog poop on the floor (those who have seen this will know).
