Great Dutch Film
12 December 2015 | by tataubabySee all my reviews

WIlD MUSSELS I've seen the remastered version is just a film good on all levels; The story is touching, there is surprisingly funny sequences in this tragic story, the soundtrack is just fabulous and the way the lead role is acted by Fedja van Huet ( who also starred in the Oscar winning film Character is amazing. The dialogues are well written by director Erik de Bruyn, who is responsible for the script too. He must have made a great team with his D.o.p. Joost van Gelder. The photography is like the Southern East dutch landscape is divided into paintings and sometimes the camera is unedited and raw. Van Gelder is now shooting worldwide campaigns from his new hometown L.A. And one can see his talent already in this film. The ending apotheosis is just very very well edited. So I need to say that for cinema-lovers, this can't be missed. Check it out!
