great film
23 October 2005 | by (voorburg city, Holland) – See all my reviews

First of all, let me state to day that you should also read the book. The book delves much deeper into the mind of the main character (Boudewijn) or in the movie (Valentijn). It also deals with how Valentijn became how he is nowadays and the child abuse from his father. (Please, read the passages in the book concerning the butterflies. so good)

Anyway, this is a movie site, so I will limit my attention to the movie. Valentijn is egotistical poet, only interested in living wild, sleeping around or other hedonistic outings. Suddenly, he meets up with (to him just another girl) his former school teacher and accidentally gets her pregnant. Valentijn does not seem eager to be a father and turns back to his former lifestyle. He leaves Mieke alone with their son.

Valentijn is ignorant at first, but during the movie he starts to care for his son. The boy grows up to be a lovable, sweet kid. Valentijn takes Mickey to his house, after a beating from Mieke. Valentijn can not combine his wild life with a stable fraternal home. He makes a lot of mistakes, but gradually Mickey becomes an unmissable piece of his life. Just after this takes place, Mickey starts to get headaches. Suddenly the boy dies after a fall. Mickey appeared to have had a tumor in his head, since birth.

After this, Valentijn realizes what he had, how he lost it and how he wasted the time he did have with his son. He burst out into tears and finds consolation from his former, estranged love Mieke. The movie ends with them both on a bike riding down Amsterdam over a bridge. They both look disillusioned and heartbroken.
