A very predictable story nicely acted out
This film proves that if a story is about weird people who engage in unusual business, that doesn't mean that the story itself cannot be very predictable. But is also proves that a very predictable story that's acted out well enough can still make an entertaining movie.
This film aired on Dutch national television, and I watched it with my mother, which was a but awkward because it contains quite a few very explicit sex-scenes. (to a degree I hadn't seen on dutch national television yet) To me it seemed these scenes were useful to tell the story, because one of the themes is that the main character is kind of alienated from a normal sex-life. But I can imagine people not agreeing on that...
What made me like the film is the acting of most of the (young) cast.
The movie seems to balance on the thin line between brave and pretentious.
A compliment for the very well synchronized violin-playing
