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 »

I'm debating myself... an 8 or .. a 9 ?
10 September 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The questions come to mind .. a)how does he choose the scripts... b)are the followers closet deadpan humour addicts? .. and on and on and on..

If you know AVW's movies, this is in line of others. You have to catch on - read the motivations of the characters - like in real life, people usually don't spiel out monologues like in Hamlet.

It is funny, quirky, yeah..all that. But it is a bit dark too. The fist 30min is the most intriguing as each character review themself - you are like meeting new ppl in a party. The next hour or so goes deep into the relationships, and the last bit... well.. I really can't remember, since I saw this last year. But darn thing is I remember the ending of Die Hard 1.

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
