A nice adaptation of Campert's book.
2 May 2000 | by daatselaarSee all my reviews

Somberman's actie is a nice but not spectacular adaptation of Remco Campert's 1985 novel. It won't save the Dutch film industry. But to me, it was a pleasant surprise. Well acted by Dirk Roofthooft (Somberman) and Serge-Henri Valcke. Somberman's actie works well as a tragicomedy, but it doesn't succeed very well in rendering the atmosphere of the 80's. All in all, recommended to those who like Dutch cinema.
