Storyline

Anna gets dumped by Dirk after a vacation together for three weeks. He's decided a month ago to return to his wife. After being miserable, she decides to skip on commitment and love but decides to go for "having fun", as that is what men seem to do as well. She encounters Rob, a good-looking funny confident construction worker. She also encounters Sander, a sensitive romantic musician who has had no luck with women. She decides to date both of them, without strings attached and without them knowing about each other. However, somewhere along the way she falls in love with BOTH of them. (Perhaps some of you might have seen that one coming.) The fact that Rob and Sander are each others' roommates does not seem to make matters easier for her as well. Written by maarten_l

Trivia

Was initially proposed as a 2004 Oscar nominee by the Dutch film committee, but the producers decided to withdraw to support the other Dutch nominee Twin Sisters (2002). See more »

Goofs

While Rob is proposing to her, Anna is trying to remove Sander's ring from her finger. In one close-up shot we see her hands doing this in front of her. In the next close-up shot, her hands are busy behind her back. It would be unlikely anyway that she would do this in front of her, as Rob would notice it. But it would be even more unlikely she would move her hands from front to back, as he would notice that even more. See more »

Light, yet sparkling romantic comedy
9 March 2003 | by Joost KoningSee all my reviews

I saw this film at a sneak preview, in a sold-out theater. With most sneak previews, a lot of people go away after 20 or 30 minutes. Not with this film. It is the story of a young woman, Anna (Van Reeden) who decides never to fall in love again, and then meets 2 men - one a rather muscular construction worker (Zegers), the other a daydreaming piano playing romantic (Conen) - both of whom she of course eventually falls in love with. She initially tries to keep her two boyfriends, not knowing that the two men are best friends and even room mates. The film makes use of practically all of the conventions of a classic romantic comedy, yet it keeps the viewer engaged in the drama of all three main characters. Van Reeden portrays a very funny, sympathetic, even lovable Anna, Zegers looks absolutely great (girls started giggling as soon as he appeared) and plays his finest role yet, and Conen proves to be an extraordinary comedian. Guest appearances of Wendy van Dijk, Belgian actor Michaël Pas and even Sjoukje Hooijmaaijer seem well chosen. The use of a lot of classic and more recent Dutch pophits (Dolly Dots, Willeke Alberti, but also Twarres, Krezip and Birgit) is remarkable, keeping the film going at all times, and appealing to everyone's memories of old friends, lovers and days gone by. People who like very sophisticated character development may be somewhat disappointed, but this film is a must-see if you're in for a light, yet sparkling and very funny romantic comedy.
