27 March 2004 | by (Amsterdam) – See all my reviews

Cinematography-by-numbers, trademark Dutch gratuitous nudity, actors who refuse to enunciate all combine to cover up what's essentially a boring story. Some interesting view point, some intelligent references and the appearance of the secretive cousin never manage to sustain my interest for long.

The signature piano tune playing through-out the movie also did little to keep me glued to the screen: director Kuijpers (Van God Los) should perhaps learn that not every movie can be Once Upon A Time In The West, and when the on-screen developments do not thrill, music added to imply a continuous threat can only grate.
