Interesting Dutch film about love
15 November 2013 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

The Dutch film "20 Leugens, 4 ouders en een scharrelei (2013) (TV)" was shown in the U.S. with the title "20 Lies, 4 Parents and a Little Egg." Hanro Smitsman was the director.

The plot revolves around a lesbian couple, Emma (Anneke Blok) and Ilse (Marieke Heebink) and a gay couple Bert (Mark Ram) and Sjors (Marcel Musters). Emma and Ilse have an adolescent son, Dylan (Nils Verkooijen).

Dylan's behavior basically defines the term, "sullen teenager." His hostile behavior towards his parents indirectly causes Emma to be badly injured. Although her injury isn't life-threatening, Emma's need for care means that she and Ilse have to find a temporary place for Dylan to live. For reasons that become clear later, Ilse and Emma ask Sjors for help.

The plot of the film revolves around the interactions among the five characters. Dylan may be annoying, but he's not hateful, and the four adults are all basically decent people. The movie delicately examines the ways each character tries to do what's best in the situation.

We saw this movie at the Little Theatre as part of Image Out--the Rochester LGBT Film Festival. It will work well on the small screen, and it's worth finding and watching in a theater or on DVD.
