kids are rebelling against their strict parents..
8 November 2013 | by rkwintSee all my reviews

This film can strictly be seen as child pornography. The girl playing the daughter in the story was only 14 at the time and is seen mostly topless. There is also a sex scene in the shower.. According to a famous Dutch lawyer you can be find with 78000€ or 4 years in prison when in possession of this video… The first half of this movie is quite nice. But the second half is so terrible you wished you had not seen it. The whole movie is half comedy, half drama. From the start the adult actors play comedy but the kids act very realistic, as far as the script makes it possible (which is not very far). The real stars are acting in the daughters (age 15 or 16?)t-shirt, the director has done everything to show them at their best. At least the half of her scenes "Madelon" is running around topless or in t-shirt and white panties. For certain that was one of the reasons it was such a big hit in Holland
