Storyline

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 Rene Guillot

Comedy without jokes
19 December 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Come on, I really expected something more from this movie. As being marketed as the follow up to Shouf Shouf Habibi, which was also a multi cultural comedy, one would look forward for some laughs and political incorrect remarks.

No, a real thin romance, cliché first generation immigrants from Morocco, overacting actors. No surprises and really not a single character you might feel good or sorry for. Can't understand the relatively high score on IMDb. Dutch movies most of the times consist of curses and sex. Well, this movie consists of nothing worth writing a comment about.
