A warm and well done culture-clash-comedy
12 November 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie caused quite some dispute in The Netherlands, it was accused of being racist and bigoted. Especially the way the Dutch black subcultures are portrayed is supposedly wrong. I didn't see it, to me this movie is as relentless towards the white (jewish) intellectual elite as it is towards the black lower class. But it seems to want to open the eyes of all people for their limited views and narrow-mindedness. And it points out how even within groups that seem homogeneous to outsiders, people have their petty little disdains for 'the others'. The intellectual Jewish look down on the 'textile Jews', the dark people from the Antilles look down on the Surinam people. And of course vice versa.

And all this in a juicy and very entertaining comedy, with a very nice cast and some splendid acting!
