it was shown on dutch TV this month, and I found this film absolutely original, refreshing, and with lots of good laughs. it reminded me in many ways of the marvellous french films of the 1960's, with actors such as jean pierre cassel.
the acting was fantastic too. the perennially shocked eyes of marianne, the weird eva who can't paint without the urge to go to the toilet first, and father john who plays dead all the time, or faint, without leaving any impression on anybody except a very wide yawn, 'oh, come on, john, finish your meal, will you?' when he has just dropped his head dramatically in his overfilled plate. great!
