Best so far of "Afblijven", "Timboektoe" and "Radeloos"
19 October 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I didn't have high expectations about this movie. I'd seen "Afblijven" and "Timboektoe", which are from the same company, and I wasn't too enthusiast about those movies. They were fine, but I thought the acting wasn't too great. I was surprised by how well the actors played in this movie. Marloes van der Wel is really good as the uncertain Yara. She's absolutely well-casted. The movie is grown-up, yet sometimes there is a child ambiance. The movie is about teenagers becoming adults and the problems they have to deal with. Though sometimes a bit overdone and soft, this movie appeals to teenagers of our society, which makes it a big success. Starring opposite well-known actors Renée Soutendijk, Monic Hendrickx and Victor Löw, the young actors prove that they can act. My compliments for Dave Schram and the rest of Shooting Star Film Company.
