Just saw this movie on TV and i think it's fabulous.It's about an IT-company which is founded and run by two brothers,living on the Veluwe, an area known in Holland as very strict in protestant religion(black stocking church is the nickname in Holland)Although the company tries to work with the strict biblical rules, the family finds it difficult to maintain these rules in big business.Based on a real-life scandal in Holland, the movie is very precise in showing the way these people live and try to explain everything through the bible. In one scene even the minister tells the people in church to go in peace and buy shares of the v. d.Laan company. Based on facts the film gives great insides in the way these people do there business and ,most of the time, get away with it.Acting is sublime!It's really the best Dutch movie i saw for quiet some time.
