The movie was in production when one of Klaas Bruinsma's old bodyguards, Charlie da Silva, gave an exclusive interview in which he revealed that Mabel Wisse Smit, fiancee of prince Friso (a member of the Dutch Royal House), had been in a relationship with Bruinsma in the late 1980s. Writer/director Gerrard Verhage immediately stated that this would not be incorporated into the movie. The character played by Chantal Janzen is a composite of one of Bruinsma's other girlfriends, and his female financial manager. See more »
In the opening scene when Klaas gets shot, there's a black Porsche 996 in the background of the shot. This model became available in 1997. See more »
The movie is pretty good, as long as you haven't read the book or don't know the real life of Klaas Bruinsma. There are many changes in the film. Like people are being killed that weren't in the real life. The book only speaks of 9 liquidations and I don't know how many there were in the movie, but more then 9.
Overall the movie is pretty good. The acting is believable and Chantal Jansen surprised me. Though she isn't a tough bitch as his wife in the book...
Well if you haven't read the book I recommend the movie. If you've read it... don't go to see it as you will be disappointed...
