Storyline

Four women from the North of Dutch town Breda are sick of their poor life. Lot is divorced and has two little kids; her friend Sam has a busy family life and an unemployed husband; Reneetje has a little daughter (and always a sniff of coke in her pocket); teacher Kers has had trouble making ends meet after her husband died. They boldly decide to rob a bank in the neighborhood and to their surprise they get away with it easily. The women are extremely happy with the success of their moves, but life has gotten nowhere near easy! Kers is being harassed by the school principal Zeger who has feelings for her. Sam's husband Najib finds her cash in a kitchen drawer and is getting quite suspicious. Reneetje is spending money like water and, worse of all, Lot falls in love with Achilles, a police officer. Tighter and tighter, the women are getting trapped. They decide to make one last big hit, but that robbery gets terribly out of hand... Written by Katerstaart

Not bad, but needs more of a plot.
22 December 2004 | by (Delft) – See all my reviews

A movie about a couple of lower class mums turning to armed robbery for a source of income, might well make a good premise for either an interesting drama or a good comedy. This film tries to be both and strikes a pretty good balance, and yet is somehow found wanting in both senses. It has some funny moments, but it's not a great laugh, and the thin plot leaves little room for the really dramatic stuff.

The main weakness of this film is the fact that the plot kind of wanders about without actually going anywhere. I found myself sitting in the theater wondering where the hell the story was going, and then feeling a bit let down when the credits started rolling. It's not a movie I'd recommend seeing in the cinema. It's more the kind of thing you come across while zapping and then keep watching without regretting it later. 5/10
