The film was largely shot on Curaçao. When the production returned to the Netherlands, it turned out that drug traffickers had replaced the footage in some of the reels with cocaine. With some of the key scenes missing, these had to be re-shot at great expense on the Spanish Island of Ibiza. See more »
I had never seen a movie by Theo van Gogh before, and didn't care much for the person, but I must say he has made a great movie.
Although this picture runs for about 2 hours, it never gets dull because of the ingenious plot. On several occasions, Theo makes you re-organize your assumptions about who-did-what. The interesting camera work makes this movie a pleasure to watch.
The tempo in this movie is not too high, yet smooth and never boring. Not until after the credits, I really understood the complete movie and it stayed in my mind for days after.
I'd give it an 8 out of 10.
