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 Driss is talking to the guys in the snack bar, asking them to phone all their friends, you can see the lights of the slot machine behind Berry completely off (as if the slot machine is turned off), then all flashing as if someone playing the machine. This happens a number of times between shots. See more »

Cut to pieces

I think this film has been cut to pieces. Having seen the deleted scenes (which contained most of its psychological development) I think the director chose speed over credibility. It seriously damages the movie. Sometimes you just don't have a clue why these characters do what they do. The storyline between Berry and his dad is amputated. The love story lacks development. In a commentary the director says that an uncut version (including even less revealing sex scenes) would've added up to almost three hours. On a DVD I might give that a try.

Although it probably wouldn't make up for the acting. I loved to watch both Katja and Egbert, but they just weren't convincing enough. Except maybe for the bed scenes. But hey, it's a known fact that they were having these both on and off set.

Not a good movie. But I liked looking at it anyway, in a silly Dutch way.
