Interesting book, mediocre movie.
13 March 2006 | by (Groningen, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Movies with euthanasia as a subject are the new rage in the movie world. This Dutch movie is an adaptation of Ronald Giphart's book. It is as if the director and writers only took a look at a summary of the book, and decided that they would only follow the storyline, but change everything else. Characters in de movie do not share any resemblance with their book counter-parts. The characters are all very one dimensional and rather uninteresting. Tijn Doctor as Giph is the miscast of the century (already). He never succeeds in getting the attention of the audience, and when you have the biggest part in a movie, that might be a problem. The biggest crime in this movie is the fact that they sugarcoated the rather depressive ending in the book, and they removed almost everything that was funny to read.

The only reason to watch this movie is the fact that this was Willem van de Sande Bakhuyzen's last movie.
