growing up with a smile and a tear
15 January 2006 | by nannevangalenSee all my reviews

how many times can one say:i liked the movie better than the book? in this case one can.i liked the book very well though,but the movie is lifted to a higher level by Thom Hoffman.Thom Hoffman has never done comedy and is known in Holland for his dark and depressing characters ,but he plays Frits van Egters with a fine sense of humor .Frits comes to an age that he must admit that his parents are only human and if he wants to make something out of his live he must do it all by himself.he must leave his fantasies behind and grow up. Thom plays the part in a way we can all recognize the incompleteness of our parents and ourselves,things we all get to deal with wen we grow up. pleasantly cynical by nature, for me this is the best dutch film ever made.
