Topnotch!
28 December 2003 | by (Doetinchem, Holland) – See all my reviews

Superb Dutch/Belgian production. Saw it more than 10 times, and as far as I can remember one of the best Dutch flicks ever!!! Hidde Maas is one of Holland's most underrated actors! See it if you can find it, and tell me I am looking for it!
