Two friends meet again in the autumn of their lives. They have not seen each other for years but soon find their renewed friendship put to the test when one of them falls ill and the other loses his newfound love. The city of Rotterdam provides the background for this story, which specifically aims to entertain senior citizens in terms of it's extremely mild humor, general references, themes (widowhood, lost friendships) and the overall age of the lead characters.

what kind of rubbish is this?
12 May 2006 | by Weary76See all my reviews

After 20 minutes it was clear: this film is so bad, you're actually ashamed while watching it. Especially when you're Dutch.

The humor is for 80 and older, the story...what story? Sure, there's something about one old geezer stealing a old broad from some other geezer, but it's just scene's that follow each other up in an unplanned script. There's a big sequence after one hour, which feels like the climax, yet it goes on for half an hour more.

The audience actually all gasped when the lead character looked up at the camera to ask his wife in heaven who the man standing by her grave is, and a woman's voice (Nouchka herself) answers that she'll take a look. And then the camera flies over the graveyard...Did the directors 3 year old grandchild come up with this idea?

What a waste of 2 million euro's to make this film. It could have been invested in a good one. And on the "De Vriendschap" main page, it says that if you liked this film, you should also see "Anderland". Who put that there? There is no connection what so ever between these 2 films. "Anderland" is for instance a good film.
