funny and real
13 April 2008 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to see this film in a test-screening today and I must say I enjoyed it a lot.

The movie is about multi-cultural societies and a love between a 'scared white man' and a colored girl in the beautiful city of Antwerp (Belgium).

The performances overall were good and some new actors are featured, Pepijn was casted very well for this role and his comments in between are very amusing. A film with a lot of humor and a realistic setting which is very recognizable. I also enjoyed the music a lot, which seemed to fit perfectly.

A must see!
