A haunting ghost story spanning two worlds, two centuries apart. When 13 year old Tolly finds he can mysteriously travel between the two, he begins an adventure that unlocks family secrets laid buried for generations.
Feature film about love and relationships in Amsterdam, consisting of an ingeniously interwoven plot of several stories and characters. Together with the feature SIMON (2004) this one is part of Terstall's trilogy about the liberties of the present Dutch society.

His crude, domineering and progressive mother Ria's suffering an incurable decease in which she suffers from paraplegia. Her inevitably ensuing death is brought forward with euthanasia. Giph is struggling to handle the situation with his mother. Shortly after his mother has passed he away, he decides to join his fun loving friends on La Palma for a holiday. There Samarinde tells her boyfriend she's expecting his baby. Written by
Sex and swearing are the main problem of dutch cinema. It's very common here, to disguise the amateur level of most movies with it. This movie is a typical example of a common dutch movie. The book is great, Ronald Giphart is an excellent writer. The movie is very bad, without dimensions in characters/storyline/dialogs. It's a pain to watch, so I recommend it if you're too happy for the moment. Technical speaking, the movie is also not acceptable. Most time, you can't hear Giphs voice because it's just to soft. Also some very basic cinema rules are just ignored. Bad headroom, bad lightning and wrong misleading camera angles. Overall, the movie frustrated me while viewing. Don't like it in any way.
