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
"Snapshots" is a journeyman B-flick about a middle-aged bookseller in Amsterdam (Reynolds) who meets the daughter (Chaplin) of an old love (Christie), falls in like with her, and then confronts his feelings with a little help from his past. This corny and awkward little flick has too many deficits for this commentary. Suffice it to say that in the grand scheme of cinema, it's crap. However, as a no brainier sentimental watch for the zoning sofa spud, it squeaks by as nominal fluff. Recommended for fans of the players or anyone who can't find anything better among the channels.

Note - the snapshots referred to by the title are really black and white nude studies of Chaplin...the most interesting, artistic, and professionally done thing in the film, IMHO.
