Black comedy
24 January 2003 | by (Amsterdam) – See all my reviews

A bit of a weird movie, with funny comments and many cameo's (Matthijs van Heijningen, Eddy Terstall himself, Mike van Diem, Diewertje Blok and many others). Definitly not his best movie, although the cast is virtually similair to all his other flicks. I loved 'Rent-A-Friend" and "Hufters en Hofdames", definitly some of the funniest dutch movies ever made, but I enjoyed "Boekverfilming" at most points. Some absurb scenes and dialogs keep it fresh, because the story is a bit thin. But still, nice comedy.
