In 2012 when the movie was shown on the Dutch Film Festival, producer Henk Bos was interviewed by Martin Koolhoven in front of an audience. Bos told that during shooting he hadn't been completely happy with the dailies. He claimed director Bobby Eerhart was very much busy with the aesthetics (shooting everything with long lenses) and not enough with the story. Because Eerhart was so concerned with the look of the movie, he was shooting very slow. Bos had then asked Hans Scheepmaker (who directed a movie before and after this for him) to come and help out. According to Bos, Scheepmaker shot much quicker and the scenes he directed were much more dynamic. Ultimately, about 40% of the final movie was directed by Hans Scheepmaker, Henk Bos estimated.

I have seen the movie about 25 times and I know all the dialoges by head. For example: "Nou je toch bezig bent, voor mij met ham graag, dubbel gebakken" and "je hebt me helemaal nog niet, vreetzak!!" and "zie je nou wel bolle, toch nog met lege handen naar huis". The acting can be rated as toplevel. One actor which deserves special attention in this is HIDDE MAAS. The phrases he uses are exceptionell, and however not intended for this purpose it propagates enormous laughter by me till I get pain in the stomach.
