Storyline

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 ...

Rather arid, uneven plot
23 December 2013 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

In many countries, taxi drivers and companies are involved in suspicious events and deals, but it is usually characteristic to less developed countries, it is hard to believe such things happening in present Holland... Anyway, the logic of the plot is in place, but many scenes and twists are predictable, paving the way for ambivalent ending. Apart from the main character Dennis (pleasantly performed by Frank Lammers), the rest are too trivial or documentary, providing no surprises. You just follow the events on screen, mostly knowing or presuming what happens next, but thanks to length (ca 1,5 hours), the film ends before becoming boring/annoying.

Having see dozens of Dutch films, I cannot include it into the best ones. On the other hand, taxi drivers or related persons might appreciate it more.
