Goofs

When Rem almost gets hit by Heineken's car; you can clearly see the "BelCompany" store in the background, a store that specializes in (mostly) cell phones. Not only were these hard to come by in 1983, but the company itself wasn't founded until 12 years later. See more »

Pretty good...
3 November 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

For a dutch film, this is a must see. The aging icon of dutch cinema, rutger hauer, gives another solid performance. This movie was pretty good n all, but still some things wrong with it, mostly the pacing... acting,scripting, suspense building, all top notch. The cinematography is good,and the music makes a good atmosphere. But from time to time i was still looking at my watch... scenes are drawn out too long and the interesting bits are unfortunately, infrequent. Overall a decent attempt with a good outcome of a film.

Enjoy -
