I saw this film about 5 years ago at the annual film festival in Gent. I was very confused and a bit shocked when I left the cinema. At the beginning the dutch director talks directly to the public and warns you about what you're going to see: 'like an extreme episode of Jerry Springer (or Jambers, for those who speak dutch)', he says, only intended to humiliate people, embarrass them, so this is pure exploitation. The people Frisch aims his camera at are mostly lowlifes who absolutely don't care they 're being laughed at. At the end of the movie there's a scene on the beach with the breathtakingly beautiful Ellen ten Damme. I saw it again recently on DVD. It's released as part of the Reel23 series. www.filmfreaks.nl/reel23/
