A top level manager starts losing it when his own company expropriates his mother and puts her in a hospital. He slowly sinks deeper and deeper in his madness. This movie is slightly reminiscent of Falling Down. Modern society and its greed changing permanently the values of the past. The only movie of Willem Ruis. A typical 70s Flemish/Dutch movie, with it's theatrical overacting and slightly amateuristic filming style. DVD I found was a straight copy of a damaged film original. Enjoyable but could have gotten more out of it. Little piece of Dutch/Belgian film history. Things have luckily moved on since then, check out De zaak Alzheimer.
