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
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 »

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. When euphoria, ecstasy, despair...

Based on the popular Ducth book by Ronald Giphart, who even has a cameo appearance to say the movie is better than his own book, 'Phileine Zegt Sorry' ('Phileine Says Sorry') is a movie that has some pretty funny moments but is not very special. The humor that was there in the book sometimes works on the screen but most of the time it does not. One thing that most people do agree on is that Kim van Kooten is the perfect Phileine, and her performance is in the spirit of the book.
Still, some things just don't work on screen. The style of writer Giphart is very important in his books and director Robert Jan Westdijk has tried to translate the style to the screen. Sometimes it gives us some nice moments but very often it fails and therefore things look strange. I think the movie is fun enough to watch and Van Kooten is worth to see it, but just don't expect too much.
