Wales & Italy Meet in Deventer, Between The Dikes of The Low Countries...
With an ensemble cast which makes one think about Robert Altman, and in which excels yet again Jeroen Willems, shows that Pierre Bokma is a marvelous actor who can't seem to shake of his theater-persona, Ariane Schlüter is simply wonderful in her small roll as the waitress, and ... well ... there are so many great performances to choose from here (Han Kerckhoffs !) !
The film's backdrop is the lovely provincial town Deventer, which works very well here. Unobtrusive, stilled, but it seems to envelop the stories of Dylan Thomas and Gianni Celatti (which sounds like an Italian ice cream, but this writer seems to be for real...) calmly and majestically.
The character's have the Dylan Thomas quality: all of them fading effortlessly in and out of a surreal dimension. That touch of poetry makes the film all the more special, and is a must see for anyone who likes a touch of the bizarre, which nevertheless is rooted in realism.
A wonderful film, and great fun !
