Great dialogue makes this one of the best Dutch movies in years...
11 February 2004 | by rjanssen74See all my reviews

Theo van Gogh did it again, and Theodor Holman earns every bit of respect on writing one of the best dialogue-movies I've seen in years. Pierre Bokma proves once again to be a great actor, and Katja Schuurman proves she's more than just a pretty face. Her role as a spoiled actress is greatly ironic, 'cause most narrow-minded viewers have only looked at her in this respect for over a decade. By playing this role with such finesse, she maybe proves to be exactly the opposite.

If you don't like Theo van Gogh as a person, please don't take that as an excuse to bomb his movies. "Interview" shows his (and Holman's) talent. The way Pierre and Katja don't want to be in the same room with each other, but can't leave each other at the same time; the way this is combined in "Interview" made me proud of Dutch cinema. Just like "Karakter" did, and just like "Van God Los" did (among others...).
