Nice view of the Dutch movie-making in the 60-70's
Recently deceased Rijk de Gooyer is at his best in this movie. Like in real life, Rijk is humorous, tough and resourcefully. John Blooming, a Dutch martial arts expert and trainer of the Dutch Olympic Karate team a long time ago, plays the role of the big, strong but not too bright sidekick very convincing. His massive appearance says more than words. I saw this movie many years ago and it always stuck in my mind. Mostly because Mr. de Gooyer plays the role of burgles very convincing and the nice storyline for a Dutch movie. As my previous raters already mentioned, the view of Amsterdam is very nice but not very realistic. All in all, a movie worth seeing also for an international audience when subtitled.
