However, Glimmie remains suspicious of the man and decides that Fanny has to be protected by him and his pal 'De Bonk'. He is soon proved correct and winds up a scapegoat in Van Borsen's scheme. After his release from prison, Glimmie plans his revenge with some help from a young cleaning girl called Slofje. Written by
I cannot remember seeing this movie from television in the past, but now on DVD, not digitally remastered, only in Dutch language, no subtitles, for "The Burglar"(De Inbreker). It is nice to see Amsterdam in the late sixties and early seventies.
The story and acting is acceptable. A professional burglar is requested to find a missing girl, with all consequences of course. However I most liked the impressions from Amsterdam, without a parking problem, the people, and the fashion impressions from half a century ago. Anyway it is not the real live for the majority of the Dutch people.
This movie is obviously not promoted in the foreign countries, since the only comments are from the Netherlands, and only a few votes for a movie from 1972
