A romantic comedy about the adventures of Nordip Doenia, a clever young Moroccan guy in The Netherlands. His parents destine him for great things, but Nordip clearly has different ideas. He takes up a simple job far below his level as a dishwasher in a big motel. There, he falls in love with Agnes, the niece of the motel owner. But Agnes faces the same parental pressure as Nordip: she is destined to take over the motel in the future, but she doesn't have ambitions for this. The love relationship between Nordip and Agnes is doomed to failure, unless Nordip can convince Agnes in going her own way, against her parent's wishes. Written by
I didn't know what the film was about, so I was kinda disappointed by it, after all the hype. I'm forced to agree with everyone who dissed the romantic bits. Man, that was bad. Surely there must be SOME better romantic writers in Holland! Certainly the initial romantic scenes were awkward and clumsy, and not credible at all. Dialogue sucked big time. The comedy parts are quite good, but one gets the feeling that the actors rescued the writer here. The writing is, in general quite bad. This was a novel first? Wow, you hope the guy didn't quit his day job. Mimoun Oaïssa's expressions, mimics, language, really rescues the comedy part, and thereby, the entire film. This is remarkable in a country with a bad rep in comedy film and TV. Cabaret, that's the Dutch forté as far as comedy is concerned. But anything else ... ouch!
