Storyline

This Dallas-type series is about two competing Dutch families, Noordermeer and De Graaf, running ancestral firms in the Rotterdam shipbuilding business, each with numerous internal tensions, especially between the generations, as some are business-prone, others adverse, some ruthless, some soft or moralistic, but also with their staff, often meeting each-other in both ruthless commercial rivalry and personal relationships, again also with staff and third parties (clients, competitors, suppliers...), producing an intricate web of sub-plots, some sex, some crime etcetera.

impressive, but it has its downsides
19 March 2001 | by (amsterdam) – See all my reviews

This is a very good series, which gives a clear vision on competition between shipbuilders. The actors are very good, especially Daan Schuurmans, who plays his role as violent and actually mad Anton very good. Also the special-effects are impressive. The one thing I thought was unbelievable, was that Anton still lives after he was tight to a ship that exploded and the sudden way some characters change their actings and ideas. Still I find it very nice to watch every week and I can certainly recommend it.
