Fun movie despite the lesser acting performances
14 January 2012 | by (Bilzen, België) – See all my reviews

Fun movie to watch, even despite the lesser quality in the acting performances. Except for some, with in particular Stanny Crets, he was awesome in this movie! He did a fine job..

You can't compare this to other Belgian movies though, like 'De helaasheid der dingen' or 'Aanrijding in Moskou'. But it does a great job of keeping you interested during the entire movie, and giving you a good laugh every now and then. The build-up is fine and so is the audio-visual aspect. But I did notice some small mistakes in their 70's setting, such as stuff you wouldn't actually be seeing in the street image those days.

Should be a nice movie for a Sunday afternoon though.
