Nederlands glory
31 March 2013 | by (Amsterdam) – See all my reviews

De movie feels like the Dutch literature. Somehow reminds me personal of the book 'Rituals' by Cees Nooteboom, maybe because of the dinner rituals shown in the movie. As said in the other review, there are some flaws in the 'time placing'. Well OK, honestly said, there are quite a lot. But who says it wasn't meant that way, when you notice it, it is because of how you are pulled into the movie. From moment one the movie grabs attention by never being exuberant, but really focuses on key aspects shown. The story shows diversity in society by first showing contrasts and then letting everybody come together. Plays with prejudices about Christianity and homosexuals.
