Storyline

Berry is a nice teenage boy from a Dutch suburban villa family, who alas abuses the excessive liberty granted by his mostly absent pa, an actor, committing truancy from his elite school in bad down-town company. Despite this dwindling future perspectives, his cute and cocky appearance makes him quite a lady-killer; Berry counts himself quite lucky to become the instantly intimate boyfriend of crazy Thera, a junkie who stopped modeling professionally or anything else productive. The pair engages in a passionate affair, and impulsively decides to embark on a 'world tour' to their arbitrary favorite destinations -Barcelona, Denver and Tonga- which they finance by cashing rent and warrants from many interested persons for the fine residence of an old lady Thera was in fact just house-sitting. After Berry says goodbye indefinitely to his well-groomed and -behaved elder brother Rein while showering together, the 'elopers' start spending the ill-gotten funds like water in a luxury hotel, but...

Trivia

The Playboy magazine featuring Thera was the real October edition of 2002 featuring Katja Schuurman. She had until then always rejected every offer to appear nude in the magazine, and only agreed to do so as her character Thera from the movie. See more »

Goofs

When Berry is talking to Thera in her mother's apartment for the first time, supposedly to bring her things, the weather (seen from behind Thera lying on the sofa) changes from dry conditions in daylight to rain in the evening in between shots. See more »

Very nice, very saucy
20 January 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Movie based on the book "Oysters at Nam Kee", giving a look inside the dynamics of the youth in multi-cultural suburbs and done very well.

Good acting, good music, nice shots of Amsterdam.

Story of a 17-year old that goes to college (Gymnasium) but living in an environment of immigrant youth with a much less bright outlook on the future. He runs into a girl who turns out to be a club-dancer. But he falls in love, and so does she.

It's just wonderful, and it should always be this way. But well, most of us are afraid of getting what we really dream of. So are these two young people.
