This made for TV movie was one of the first movies in the Dutch 'telemovie' project and whilst it was made back in 1999, I still think it is one of the best. A job is available at the prestigious Dutch Rijksmuseum. Two man are up for the last rounds of talks to get the job. Totally by chance they meet at a party, Onno, in his thirties and unemployed for quite a while now and ýour typical arrogant y(oung) u(rban) p(rofessional) Alex. Onno develops a terrifying scheme to sidetrack Alex. Right before the job-interviews Onno kidnaps Alex. He subdues him with ( too much ) pepperspray and locks him up in the cellar of an old cottage in the middle of nowhere. Alex is led to believe that he is kidnapped because of his father's job at a ministry. When Onno's gotten the job he releases Alex. A couple of years later the fortunes have changed. Alex has been ridiculed after his ordeal and has not managed to get a job. Onno is very successful by now. They meet again when a desperate Alex applies for the job of Onno's assistant. Onno thinks this is his chance to right past wrongs and hires Alex. After all....there is no way Alex could ever find out what happened right? The story is a bit far fetched but it works. The actors do a good job and are very well cast. The script takes a few surprising turns. On and on a very worthwhile watch.
