In Holland, Willem Ruis was a known show-host. His way of presentation and participation with the guests on his shows has been a welcome guideline to many new presenters. His sudden passing away in 1986 is still a very sad thing.
In this movie he shows himself in another way, a way in we've hardly seen him before but is sure no punishment to see. As Harry Melchior, a very powerful tycoon and investor in big projects, finds out that his elderly house in which his mother still lives, has to be broken down because of a project his company pays for, he snaps. He turns against his partner and doesn't avoid extreme violence.
The movie works because of Ruis' wit and credibility.
