Could be great, but it wasn't
18 June 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Movie was on dutch TV tonight, watched it but I'm really disappointed. The movie has a great cast, some fine dutch actors.

But there where some writers that made a lot of effort to keep it from becoming a good movie. There are like 3 a 4 different stories in the film which don't supplement each other.

Every potential to make it a good story has been left unexploited. No humor, a a shortage of tension, stories didn't merged together. I saw the clock and noticed there where only 10 minutes left to complete all the stories. And this is really done in 10 minutes, it's a shame.

All great actors but a bad story writer....
