Larry Goldberg is the owner of a second-hand bookstore in Amsterdam. He came to The Netherlands 30 years ago. He's a middle aged hermit who likes to talk and has an answer to everything. He is intelligent and has a sense of humour. One day, a girl walks into his store, who looks like Larry's lost love from Morocco. The girl makes Larry rethink his life. In the surroundings of the bookstore, a lot of criminal, but also funny activities take place. Besides Amsterdam, the movie also travels to Morocco, to see Larry and his love 30 years before, and to the United States, where Aïsha's family lives. Written by
What a nice, quiet little movie. Rented it last night, on the quest for something non-blockbuster-ish. The atmosphere and subtly-felt performances were so nicely executed that it made up for the unlikeliness of the key plot points. Wonderful shots of Amsterdam, too.
