Interesting plot on paper disappoints on screen, dialect leaves too much guess work
1 February 2011 | by (Amersfoort, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The promised story, as worded in the film announcement, looked interesting. Pity is that I found the pace in which it developed, unbalanced. It had a slow start by showing some redundant scenes, while conversely we had several pieces of essential information later on that were treated too sketchy.

The actual story as it enfolded, was riddled with accidental events and encounters, to the extent that it was hard to believe that this could happen in the real world. Even in a book (comic or prose) such a series of events would seem far-fetched. Maybe there is some context that I missed?? All too predictable were the emotional reactions of the main characters, so that did not rescue the story either.

Finally, I had big problems with the language (dialect). Though considering myself reasonably fluent in English, I missed a lot due to the dialect used. I don't think this is acceptable for presentation to an international audience.
