Storyline

Johan Dros is born as eleventh consecutive son of soccer-obsessed pa Rinus, who raises his boys mainly as the small island Texel's team. Johan's rare reprieves from training for a sport he doesn't care for cease when ma dies. After captain brother Johhny sort of steals his local girl-friend Evy, Johan leaves for Amsterdam, where he becomes a hairdresser and would-be singer. Soccer, a vocal TV talent-hunt and Evy will bring them all together again, but also raise unprecedented strife in the Dros family. Written by KGF Vissers

Enjoyable Performance from Michiel Huisman
2 September 2010 | by (the ruins beneath the Planet of the Apes) – See all my reviews

What we have here is a charming little drama from the Netherlands featuring talented actor/musician Michiel Huisman as a misfit brother in a family of football fanatics. Seems that his father's dream is to sire an entire team, and poor Johan is the eleventh brother born, but shows no interest in the sport. As the years go by, he develops his singing talents, and becomes involved in a love triangle with a free-spirited young girl and his professional footballer brother.

Many sequences are beautifully composed and filmed, and it's a pleasure to view the stunning locations and scenery. Early scenes of when the family was young are both humorous and poignant. The plot may be somewhat slight, but Huisman has the charisma to keep the audience involved all the way. And there's a fun turn by Leona Phillippo as Johan's best friend and confidante, Hester. She's the confidant and smart proprietor of a hair salon, who both inspires and shelters Johan in her shop, and her hairstyles are fabulous.
