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 »

Emotional Masterpiece
30 January 2004 | by (Antwerpen) – See all my reviews

A film that rips your soul apart. For me perhaps the best film of the

International Rotterdam Film festival. I hope it will come to

Belgium, so I can see it again. Monique Hendrickx and Oksana Akinshina (Lilya Forever) are the

heart of the film and play very well. Very, very well.... I came out crying. I give it 9 out of 10.
