Carice van Houten,
Rem's Amsterdam family lives a nightmare since his father got an alcohol abuse problem related to working for multinational Heineken's brewery distribution and was fired before it became terminal. Rem learns that his bully work colleague Cor is planning to kidnap a businessman with two freak acolytes. Rem convinces them to let him in and aim higher, beer king Alfred Heineken himself, after being nearly run over and left with a token banknote by his driver. They pretend having taken Heineken and his driver to Germany and cash a huge ransom. Heineken hires private detectives and pushes the Dutch and French police, who soon capture the gang. The faulty extradition treaty, up for revision but too late, prevents a Dutch trail for Rem and Cor, but the French authorities fly them to the French half of Antillian island St.Martin and Heineken's cash is spread liberally in a plot to drive the pair over the island border, on Dutch soil.

In the first scene you see Holleeder taking off his leather jacket. In the next view he wears the jacket no more, then in the next view he's taking it off again. See more »
Well done for bringing these talents together. Rem annex Holleeder is a great invention and makes the movie worth seeing. I also liked Heinekens wife a lot. What is great that the film also brings some humor to it. Before the premiere I was a bit skeptical but it worked out really well. I loved all the scenery. Great locations. I waited almost 30 years for this film. It was worth waiting for it. I think it must have been difficult to leave some details out. Something I was surprised of is that they put emphasis on Heineken personal life. They literally brought two worlds (gangsters and Heineken) together in their private world, which makes it interesting and not to factual.
