Brilliant movie
27 August 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

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.
