Trivia

Originally Renée Soutendijk was going to play Martje, but during the writing of the last versions of the script director Martin Koolhoven understood he had made a mistake and decided to cast Monic Hendrickx in the leading part. Monic won the Golden Calf (the most prestigious Dutch movie award) for her part as Martje. See more »

It maybe wrecked my soul.
4 December 2005 | by (Tallinn, Estonia) – See all my reviews

It is impossible to rate this movie. Did it move me? Affect me? Oh yes. I feel completely and totally wrecked right now. And that is after 4 stiff drinks and a very lighthearted comedy I saw after this one on the Black Nights Film Festival. I almost walked out of this one - a first in my movie-going career. Not because it was a bad movie, or a boring movie or a pointless movie. But because I was afraid. Of what it could do to me. A definite first for me. Kim-Ki Duk's "The Isle" is child's play compared to this one.

Remember, what you don't see, is the most horrible of all.

No I do *NOT* want to see it again. And I am not sure I can recommend to anybody who has feelings.
