Not a loose in sight
29 March 2010 | by (Maastricht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Usually I'm none too fond of the Dutch film industry - all too many Dutch films try to mask the lack of a decent plot by tossing in non-functional nudity and are irritating at best. This film is one of those few examples that shows that things can be done differently and that there -are- films to be proud off being made here.

It all starts as a young guy gets introduced into the world of investment trading after he's been identified as the person leaving notes with good insights a few times. As he lays his hands on the machine and starts making a name for himself it becomes clear he's no one-day fly - his results are shocking as he's raking in more and more money every day. And with that comes the other side of the story - is he able to deal with this sudden success? In a whole it's a pretty standard film in which a loner that is met with a sudden change of success is also met with a sudden change in popularity. It changes him in the same way that has been done before but it's played out very nicely. He's a likable guy and his slow gradual slip away from reality is understandable. So, as a film, it works. It's compelling and odd.
