The two brothers Van der Laan, of strict religion, have been running Holland's most successful software company for 10 years when suddenly their financial manager leaves the firm. The lives of the brothers and their families get turned upside down when they hire a young hot shot financial specialist, in order to pursue their goal to bring the company to the NASDAQ. Written by
A brilliant movie based on a true story with some fiction to get a great movie! Brilliant acting! The true story-part of this movie is of course the fall of the brothers Baan with their company Baan (in the movie the brothers Van Der Laan). For years the stock Baan was one of the great moneymakers and the two deeply religious brothers were even capable of reaching the Nasdaq. Kees Prins, Pierre Bokma, Monique Hendrickx and many others are very convincing in playing a strict religious family in the town Putten on the Veluwe. The fictional parts of this movie are as touching as a good movie should be! This movie is an absolute must for fans of European movies.
