This movie is so bright and shiny it may just give some people seizures. I guess that's a deliberate choice of the makers to indicate the characters' decadence, but man does this movie look vile and unpleasant. Apart from that well, it's still not very good. The plot about stereotypical rich women trying to kill their husbands while delivering pseudo-funny superficial dialogues has been done already, and often with better results. The ways in which they keep getting away with everything are highly unbelievable, when one of the characters is electrocuted they just naturally assume it's suicide after roughly two minutes of investigation. The plot is infested with implausibilities like that, and it's pretty annoying. Speaking of annoying, the nudity in this movie is incredibly gratuitous even by cult director Dick Maas' standards. It takes a special kind of director to make me feel annoyed by breasts, but there you have it. And then there's the ending. Man I hate the ending, compared to this ending the rest of the movie almost makes sense. Almost. While Dick Maas' "Flodder"-trilogy is definitely a guilty pleasure I'd recommend to anybody, "Moordwijven" is just a total dud.
