Excellent movie reflecting dutch growing maturity in filmproducing
4 March 2001 | by (rotterdam, netherlands) – See all my reviews

Met grote blijdschap is a story about real human drama performed by real characters. There's been no attempt to exaggerate or to use caricatures or freaks to build up to the dramatic events at the end of the movie.

It builds up nicely from a secure home situation, the disturbing message comes by phone. The anxious trip to Belgium is filmed excellent and does not distract too much from the rest of the story. Once they've found Ad, two plots tumble over each other. One plot unfolds quite easily only to reveal the second. Outstanding performances by the actors without forgetting Dutch humor

The story was written by Lodewijk Crijns and Kim van Kooten. It makes me regret that i didn't see his first movie, Jezus is een Palestijn. It seems that nowadays it is a recommendation to have the name kim van kooten on a production.

I guess we will hear more of these people, I certainly do hope so.
