Storyline

Thijs is a ripe-age Dutch tomato grower. His adult daughters plan to have him move in a skyscraper-flat, leaving home and professional life, but he takes his adolescent (half-)Moroccon grandson Omar's advice to refuse and keep living. Thijs even lets the cheerful rascal coach his love-life, which lands him on a blind date with Jacky, an energetic Flemish woman, who won't take no for an answer but turns up at his door-step till he consents, and soon drags him into evening life, preparing for a dance contest. Soon after Omar turns up, listless and lazier then ever, runaway from school and home. The obvious reason for the horny hound's hanging head is a girl: Mergal is foxy, Turkish and as smitten as he, but her burly big brother Erhan will only allow a boy to go steady with her who has proven himself his better on the field in the traditional manly sport of oil-wrestling. Now Thijs, in his day a 'dry' wrestler, resolves to return the kid's favor by coaching down-beaten Omar back to life... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Director Martin Koolhoven had already met Dutch rapper 'Yes-r' a year before when he did a casting for his film Het schnitzelparadijs (2005). He saw the talent of the young Morrocan, but thought it was a bit to early for 'Yes-r'. A year later he called him back to give him the lead in his new production. See more »

a lively tale of a tomato growers late life love and the hilarious consequences
5 April 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a movie which one can sit back and enjoy, providing excellent visuals and fun filled episodes that keep us laughing all the way.

The genius of the director is apparent in the way the story unfolds with clever inputs from he young Omar who acts as a guide to his grandpa in matters that make him hesitate to go ahead, in view of his age and his two daughters disapproving of his need for a new lease of life. The tomatoes add a dimension to many scenes and are a welcome change from usual love stories churned out from Hollywood. Some drama is included in the form of the rebellious grandson but he is lovable and provides enough thread to keep the story together until the end where we await in suspense of what is going to happen. You will not be disappointed if you see the movie which is woven among people of different cultures getting integrated with each other without losing their original identities.
