Not Terstalls best work, nevertheless some funny scenes
10 January 2001 | by (utrecht, netherlands) – See all my reviews

After 'Hufters & Hofdames' (Bastards & Bridesmaids), 'Babylon' is Eddy Terstall's second low-budget-Amsterdam-movie. The movie was shot in Terstalls neighbourhood (the famous 'Jordaan') in about two weeks, for some 20,000 dollars. Like in 'Bastards...',Terstall wanted to make a movie (to keep his skills going), but he didn't want to wait for money of the Dutch Film Found (it would last ages to get some...)

So he wrote five little stories about comic outsiders in love in summertime Amsterdam (based on some of his friends, who also play their roles), and put them on film. As a result, 'Babylon' hasn't really its own substantial plot: there are just these five subplots which, in the end, barely get together.

Nevertheless, some of these subplots have really funny moments. But as a whole, Terstalls earlier 'Bastards & Bridesmades' and later 'Based on a Novel' and 'Rent-a-Friend' are way better.
