Martin Koolhoven's Suzy Q.: One of the best Dutch films ever made.
2 February 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Director Martin Koolhoven graduated in 1996 from the Dutch Filmacademy and three years later he made one of his best films; Suzy Q.

It's a story about Suzy (wonderfull acting of Carice van Houten) and her weird family. Her father is a dirty man who can't get his hands of Suzy, her brother Zwier is very depressed and her other Brother Palmer, doesn't want to hang out with Suzy. Suzy's mother is a little bit naive about this situation and she doesn't really know what to do about it. The whole story is situated in a weekend and after this weekend nothing is going to be the same.

Director Martin Koolhoven has made with Suzy Q. one of the best Dutch films ever.
