The Dutch Sarith grows up with her slave Mini-Mini by her side. Their different societal positions in a time of slavery is what both binds and separates them.
1 October 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

"Hoe Duur Was De Suiker" offers a peek into a dark part of Dutch history; it is the 18th century in Surinam, former colony of the Netherlands, where wealthy white families keep black slaves to work in their houses or on their fields. Little rich girl Sarith grows up in luxury, with her own slave Mini-Mini by her side. As Sarith and Mini-Mini grow older, their different societal positions as slave-owner and slave is what both binds and separates them.

This film could have been a great way to make Dutch audiences aware about the history of slavery and move them with the main storyline. Although the scenery, decor and costumes are beautiful and credible, the plot, script and acting is anything but convincing. The shallow storyline makes it hard for the viewer to relate to the main characters and the overall story. This also has to do with flimsy lines and bad acting (especially Gaite Jansen) - which sometimes looked surprisingly clumsy in comparison to the detailed and polished backgrounds. Unfortunately, this film fails to convince and to move, and thereby misses a great opportunity to produce a film worthy of incorporating into Dutch film canon.
