Storyline

Mr. Haneveld runs the household like a devoted butler in Emma Blank's Dutch seaside villa. It's a crazy mix of disgruntled staff, unstable lovers and incestuous offspring, constantly harassed by Emma's absurdly inconsistent orders. Her brother Theo even literally plays the family dog. Only Gonnie, Hanevlet and Emma's daughter, finds an external lover, Martin, who later shares in their pointless misery. When Emma discloses the inheritance everyone waited for without pay is lost in stock crises, only the house is left, a grim finale ensues. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The family house was built especially for this film. The decision of building the house was made after an extensive search for a house that more or less matched the idea of Alex van Warmerdam, who conceived and wrote down the layout of the house in great detail in his script. See more »

cold honesty
19 September 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

at first sigh - cruel. mixture of theater play and horror title. in fact, only honest picture from a part of ordinary existence. this is its key. the credible chain of gestures and dialogs. the details of action. the brilliant gray acting. a film as warning about sickness, pity, roles in a group, links between people. a wise film, far of usual traps, clear and grave, profound and clear as a water glass. each character as drawing of a state of soul. the performance of Marlies Heuer is really beautiful. the work of her colleagues - impressive. must see it ! not only as a special Dutch film. but as question about roots of decisions of every day.
