Trivia

In 2013, a TV special was broadcast in The Netherlands, in which an attorney explained that, as stated by Dutch law, this movie can be considered child pornography, since actress Akkemay was only 14 years old when she did her nude and sex scenes. Consequently, distributing and owning this movie would officially be punishable by law. Furthermore, the producers, director and adult actors who worked on the sex scenes could technically be prosecuted for child molestation, had the time period for such an offense as defined in the statute of limitation not already been exceeded. In the same special, Akkemay herself asserted that she had read the script beforehand, and that she and the director had both reached an agreement on the way the nude scenes were shot. See more »

Goofs

A 1976 Buick LeSabre is the car of John Gisberts. The exhaust pipe is on the right of the car. In one shot (when his kids put a condom on the exhaust), it is moved to the left. Same for a yellow sticker on the back of the car. See more »

Good start, very bad end and 2 top stars
18 July 2001 | by (Amsterdam) – See all my reviews

The first half of this movie is quite nice. But the second half is so terrible you wished you had not seen it. The whole movie is half comedy, half drama. From the start the adult actors play comedy but the kids act very realistic, as far as the script makes it possible (which is not very far).

The real stars are acting in the daughters (age 15 or 16?)t-shirt, the director has done everything to show them at their best. At least the half of her scenes "Madelon" is running around topless or in t-shirt and white panties. For certain that was one of the reasons it was such a big hit in Holland
