Fast-paced political statement that falls a bit short of its target
2 October 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A somewhat chaotic and not too believable story of an imaginary Dutch politician who is caught in the turmoil of current (2008 - 2010) Dutch politics. Neither fully entertaining nor completely moralistic, but with everything added up still enjoyable, so I rate it 6 out of 10 stars.

The film starts in typical Eddy Terstall style with rapid switching between characters and equally rapid and witty dialog. Later it slows down and focuses on the main character, Jos Franssen, head of an imaginary left-wing Dutch political party who is heavily influenced by the family of his son-in-law and lurches to the political right, to the horror of his fellow party members. Terstall mixes politics and personal life, like a real politician would experience it, though he seems to want to try to hit as many themes as possible in the limited time that the film allows. Too much is happening and the Franssen character is too much of a wind-vane to be believable, but it is a nice kaleidoscope of current political sentiments. At the end the director tops it off with a clear (and commendable, in my view) political statement that to me is a bit forced and detached from the rest of the film, though some may say otherwise.

This film portrays Dutch politics, especially the current situation. It will mostly appeal to Dutch viewers, also because the appearances of numerous well-known Dutch journalists and entertainers, who give the film a very real feel.
