Storyline

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 Hoofmark

2 lady's, one man...
23 April 2003 | by (Rijnsburg, Holland) – See all my reviews

It's not only an interesting movie because it plays in Amsterdam, it's just a nice lovestory with a pretty good end. It's a bit strange that there is only 1 sentence in the whole movie which is Dutch, but as a Dutch-English co-production that is not very strange.

The daughter tries to find out who she is, in making pictures of herself. As she is a beautiful young lady, the pictures are beautiful as well. She's an artist, as well as the man who she works for. Burt Reynolds is this man, the owner of a bookstore.

Lovely film and I should advise you nothing but this; watch it!
