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 »

The movie was okay, the kind you rent on DVD on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Bur surely not worth the 9 euro's i had to pay to see it at the cinema! Acting was average at best and pretty bad at times. It's nice to see the locations in Amsterdam. Art direction was good, as was the music. The story was a bit boring, nothing much happened really. You just follow the main character, Klaas (Bruinsma), from the start of his criminal career to his demise and violent death years later. The plot you can see coming like light years ahead, no surprises there. Although i predicted what was to happen i still don't yhink it makes any sense. I'm curious what others think about this movie... 6/10
