13 April 1999 | by (Amsterdam) – See all my reviews

Not a masterpiece at all, but a very entertaining portrait of a bunch of dropouts roaming the streets of Amsterdam during the summer of 1997. On the other hand: maybe the picture you get of the life of these bums is a bit too bright: the sun is shining all the time, and it only rains once! That's not a very realistic picture of the Dutch climate these people have to endure. Finally: the film is a bit long!
