The inside story of the planning, execution, rousing aftermath and ultimate downfall of the kidnappers of beer tycoon Alfred "Freddy" Heineken, which resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for an individual.

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 »
The Heineken Kidnapping...... It tastes a lot better then the movie
After reading some books and seeing a lot of TV docs about the kidnapping i went to the cinema with a high expectation about this movie. I thought i was in the wrong cinema room. Perhaps 10% of the movies contains facts about the kidnapping. The 90% left is like a cheap local TV show. When the main character imitates a piece of Tony Montana it was like he was acting his first time.
Maybe the movie was worth a 6 for a Dutch low budget movie but because of the bad acting and by not telling the true story i only give it 3 out of 10.
Dutch movies like De Dominee are much better!
