back to the memories
16 April 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A very good movie for the Netherlands. I'm from the Netherlands and I was very curious for this movie. It was a blind buy on Blu-ray for me cause I already went to "komt een vrouw bij de dokter" in the cinema.

Lindag de Mol is the star here and she fits her role perfectly. It is supposed to be a thriller but there are only a few moments. The main aspect of the film is that you travel to the past of the main character to understand what is happening today in her life. The movie is steady paced and builds up nicely without dull moments.

The acting is solid from all actors and the movie has a sad, dark feeling overall. It is not supposed to be a happy movie but the mood is nice to be in as you have sympathy for the main character.

This is a who dun-nit movie but my biggest disappointment in this movie is that you discover the person who did it long before Linda does. That does not make the movie bad though as it is nice to see how it all ends up story-wise.

I did not read the book as I don't read books so if you read the book then I don't know if you are going to be disappointed. Considering that you can figure out who the bad guy is I think the movie stands very good on its own anyway.

Linda is the real star here but don't forget the others. They deliver strong performances overall! 8 out of 10
