Storyline

Ronald Plasmeyer (Ruben Van Der Meer) is a small-time Amsterdam detective, struggling with financial problems because of his gambling habit. When the Chinese crime boss Hao threatens Ronald's ex-wife and son to get his money back, Ronald comes up with a plan that will solve all his problems. Ronald enlists two petty criminals (Ton Kas and René Van 't Hof) to rob an illegal poker tournament he's taking part in, providing him with a perfect alibi. Quick, simple and non-violent; the plan is foolproof... until people start getting killed. Soon, Ronald's partners take off with the money, leaving him empty handed. To make matters worse Ronald's colleagues in the police force begin to suspect him of the robbery, setting the stage for a nerve-racking game of cat and mouse. Ronald is all-in... holding the worst hand of his life. Written by Anonymous

Great dutch flic about a beautifully played loser-in-denial cop trying to solve his problems with.., more problems
17 December 2013 | by (Amsterdam, NL) – See all my reviews

Ronald Plasmeyer, a totally irrelevant Amsterdam police detective, is the saddest sod of the department, and probably of the entire recent Dutch cinema at that.

This intriguing loser frantically tries to keep his life together, trying to fix one mistake with an even bigger one. He keeps telling everybody (including himself) everything is fine (yeah, no, really, no problem, it's fine, I got it under control, really man, I got this!) while his every single effort he makes collapses underneath his feet.

The fact that his raging gambling addiction leads to a failed robbery and his p*ssed off ex-wife considers him a total a-hole completely eludes him. Everything's fine!

Plan C is an atmospheric film, with the atmosphere being that of the bad neighbourhoods in Amsterdam North (a run down living area for petty criminals and other degenerates). The film is well made (especially considering the usual standards for popular Dutch cinema), and Ruben vd Meer does an amazing job (probably his best so far) as loser-in-denial, self pitying Plasmeyer. His performance alone makes this film worth watching!
