Dennis van der Horst is a kind-hearted young entrepreneur. He lives by the rules of the street. The only people he feels any responsibility for are his brother Marco and his family, who are not very well off. When Dennis gets the chance to obtain an extremely expensive but lucrative taxi-license, he seizes it. In the presence of the manager of MOTAX, the only taxi company in Amsterdam, Dennis borrows a very large sum of money. Dennis is beside himself with joy. The hustling is over. Soon however Dennis finds out that there was a reason why it was so easy for him to obtain such a scarce license. The law is being altered, allowing competition on the taxi market. The licenses of Dennis and many of his colleagues all at once become worthless. As of that moment there is a war going on in the streets of Amsterdam. Dennis gets deeper into trouble when he finds out that he has unwittingly become part of the criminal organization behind MOTAX. Even the police turn out to have secret ties with ...

some kind of mobster storyline
10 June 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Six years after this was made and I visited Netherlands (which I do on a regular base) I found this for 1 euro at a famous Record Store (you can guess which one). Somehow the story attracted me and I was right, it was a good flick.

I can't tell how the business is played in the world of taxis but I can guess that this showed how it works. Of course it's a flick and things are a bit exaggerated. But still after a while you really get into the character of Dennis (Frank Lammers) and you can see that his dream about having a limo service isn't going to work out. So he is in desperate need for money and makes a few mistakes. The downward spiral starts.

I found it well made and the use of the typical music coming from Amsterdam (André Hazes style)did give it an extra feeling. And the ending was okay too. I can understand that people not living in Amsterdam can't understand what's going on and that may be a reason why it never will be picked up widely even as it has English subs. By which I mean, no special (CGI) effects or big explosions, just here and there a fight...Peggy Jane de Schepper (Elize) as seen in Costa (2001) does shows a jugg if you are a quick viewer.
