Storyline

Sarah, a beautiful and gifted 15-year-old from a wealthy but chaotic family, holds on to one dream: to run away from home and to become a professional ballet dancer. She meets 30-year-old Vic, who's good-looking, charming and the first person to understand her. At last Sarah has a friend. She trusts him blindly. Vic promises to help her get away from home: together they are strong. They are a team. They fall in love. But Vic is actually extremely dangerous but by now she is entangled in his web. At home, her parents don't notice what's going on. What are Vic's real intentions with Sarah? Is she totally on her own now? She cannot rely on her parents, that's for sure. Her dream seems to be further away than ever. Written by Hannelore Goossens

Breathtaking story about a girl becoming a woman.
23 November 2004 | by imdb-5000See all my reviews

De Kus is the story of a 16-year old girl who's overprotected by her wealthy parents. She dreams of becoming a ballet-dancer, but her parents want her to have a 'decent' diploma. When she meets a boy and falls in love, her life takes another path. She doesn't know the boy is a pimp and his only goal is to lure her into the prostitution. The only weak point in the story is imho that the pimp has his "base" in a youth café where during the day schoolgirls and boys are coming and at night prostitutes do their business. It's the story about a girl awakening, becoming an adult in a very abrupt way. The metamorphosis is expressively shown and the public notices a significant different girl at the end of the movie.
