Trivia

Steekspel was a partly crowd sourced film. The first three minutes were written by Kim van Kooten and people could send in scripts for the rest. Verhoeven found none of the submissions good enough, so the screenplay was written by him and Robert Alberdingk Thijm, based on some ideas by the submissions. See more »

Witty and Very Funny
3 January 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

During the birthday party of the wolf 50 year-old entrepreneur Remco (Peter Blok) promoted by his beloved wife and partner Ineke (Ricky Koole), he learns that his former lover Nadja (Sallie Harmsen) is pregnant. On the next morning, he also learns that his two other partners have betrayed him and are trying to sell his company to the Chinese. They blackmail him with Nadja´s baby, promising that she will disappear if he sells the company. Meanwhile his daughter, her best friend and his son discover a secret that will affect Remco´s business.

"Steekspel", a.k.a. "Tricked", is a witty and very funny comedy by Paul Verhoeven. The storyline is simple about a dysfunctional family and with several twists and an excellent open conclusion. The nice cast is another attraction of this underrated film. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Traição" ("Betrayal")
