Storyline

Gorgeous Dutch youngster Max has two passions, acting and girls. The first becomes his brilliant career, which takes off so well he gets invited to a prestigious New York theatre course for a year. But since he met fickle bitch Phileine in an Utrecht park, his flirting life is cut short while she cruelly plays with his feelings rather then his horny body. After refusing to follow him, she turns up uninvited later and still acts jealous and possessive. Grief follows for everyone, working up to a convoluted finale. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Director Robert Jan Westdijk and writer Ronald Giphart found each other in their dislike of the previous film based on Giphart's work, Ik ook van jou (2001). They decided to work together to make a more faithful adaptation of Giphart's novel "Phileine Zegt Sorry". That is why Giphart has a cameo in the movie where he states that the movie is better than his book. See more »

Quotes

Lotti, the mother: I just want you to know there are two kinds of fidelity in a relationship: love fidelity and sex fidelity. Your father gives me love, depth and peace; and Antonio, Anand, Costas and Mustapha help me crease the sheets. For those moments in life when the underbelly conquers the brain.

This is great!
29 September 2003 | by allessiexrsSee all my reviews

I have read the book and I laughed. I saw the movie on the Dutch Film Festivl and I laughed. I'm thinking back to the scene where Phileine is intending to give Max the pleasure of his life and I'm laughing. This is by far the most humoristic Dutch movie I saw in my life!
