If you have ever doubted about a relation between human beings and the have to see this movie! It is not about proving the evolution theory, it is just a funny look at the behaviour of people and animals, and how much they are alike. Bert Haanstra proved with this film (and many others) that he is one of the greatest directors the Dutch cinema ever had and will have.
