Bracha van Doesburgh,
Five best friends, all married, decide to share a loft apartment. In this loft they meet their mistresses and conquests. Everything seems perfect, until one morning the body of an unknown young woman is found in the loft. The group of friends begin to suspect each other and it soon becomes clear that they know far less about each other than they had initially thought. Written by
Antoinette Beumer and five other crew members were badly injured in an accident on set, when a scaffold of over 9 feet high collapsed. She ended up with a broken arm and a broken jaw. For a few scenes Beumer was replaced by 'Erik van Looy', the director of the original Loft (2008) who was initially going to direct this remake as well. She made an amazingly quick recovery and resumed directorial duties after only a few weeks. Afterwards, she admitted that she could not see the differences between her scenes and the ones shot by van Looy. See more »
I saw this movie on the film 1 channel for free. I'm not a fan of dutch movies and I would never spend money to see those movies. why? Because in all the Dutch movies I've seen the acting is really bad. Loft is no exception. Barry Atsma is alright and the two Marrocan looking actors were also pretty good. But seeing Jeroen van Koningsbrugge being interrogated by the police was cringe-worthy. This movie also tries to copy stuff from Hollywood movies. the actors talk in a way Dutch people don't normally do. (calling people by their family name for example)Somehow you will watch this movie and not really care about the characters because you'll keep looking at them as actors and not "real" people. The storyline of the movie isn't bad and despite the bad acting I kept watching. If you do like this movie I recommend watching "Very Bad Things" from 1998. The story is somewhat similar but funny.
