Great entertainment
21 December 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I had seen this movie years (like 30+) ago and thought it was excellent. Now that it's available on DVD it's a great addition to my (international) collection. I would even go as far as saying that this might be the best Dutch movie ever made, or at least the best comedy. The story is about a typical 50's village and it's inhabitants. Adding to the small town quarrels is the use of water. As most people will know a large part of the Netherlands is below sea level. So is this village. No roads but canals. Maximum use is made of this. Even the ducks play a part.

The DVD comes with the Oscar-winning short film 'Glas'. And for those who don't master the Dutch language: The DVD provides English subtitles. !
