Some important young actors...
23 November 2004 | by timber13See all my reviews

I've seen this movie a couple of times now and like all older Dutch movies, it isn't extremely good. Even though, unlike the majority of the people, I think the newer movies aren't that much better anyway. I think some of the young actors were pretty good in that movie, considering their age and no experience in doing movies. Especially this guy Tommy Meijdam, he had only a small part, but I can see how this was just the start of his career. He has done some underground stuff and I think he is going to come back big soon with a commercial thing, so I'm going to keep my eyes out.

I saw him very recently and it seems his work on the screen has only improved and he seems to be ready for a big break soon enough. Grab the popcorn and sit yourself down on the couch, it's going to be a good future for Dutch movies!
