The Surrender is a romantic erotic film based on the novel The surrender of Floor by Renee Amstel. A critic called the novel: "the Dutch answer to the Fifty Shades of Grey hype". Eva is a pretty young woman. She works in a cafe and her dream is to be a singer. One day, the famous actor Tim asks if she wants to play with him in a movie. There is no script, only the romantic erotic novel The Surrender Of Floor. Does she want to see with him how they can play the two characters in the book? That is the beginning of their tempestuous relationship, in which they are trying to be honest to their own secret fantasies and go beyond their limits. How far do they go in love? Written by
Good acting (there go the two stars to), badly cut and paste job (no stars), sin! Storyline is so muddled (no star) Synopsis suggests that all violent scenes between free down, but that is so concise that it is not a sensual film is more (no stars). General impression (no stars)! Is due to time constraints but really very sad. This film could have been so much more. Props for Sheena Tchai, as a rookie move they are a credible role down. Hopefully this is not Rick Engelkes last film (as the film suggests), he earned a stunner to finish. Maybe the next film could be Paul Ruvens next hit, but it ain't this one. The best of luck for the whole crew!
