Transparent acting gradually builds up a story of a beautifully constructed moral dilemma
23 August 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I am amazed by the realism in this work. Hardly surprising, because it is clearly inspired by and based upon the Baan Company affair. The story shows us how faith and business in a big Dutch company rooted in the bible-belt get entangled up to the point where tension gets too high and the shoulders of the ones carrying it collapse. Maybe dogmatic faith and business do not mix after all? Maybe this collapse is nothing but a logical consequence? It set me to think about that.

All the main characters play their parts very convincingly. Kees Prins' role in particular was a real surprise to me. I knew he is talented, but still he exceeded my expectations. However, Pierre Bokma's performance is possibly even better. Furthermore, acting by all the players in this movie is transparent as it should be; building up the story and tension without drawing attention.

I highly recommend this movie.
