Storyline

Four women from the North of Dutch town Breda are sick of their poor life. Lot is divorced and has two little kids; her friend Sam has a busy family life and an unemployed husband; Reneetje has a little daughter (and always a sniff of coke in her pocket); teacher Kers has had trouble making ends meet after her husband died. They boldly decide to rob a bank in the neighborhood and to their surprise they get away with it easily. The women are extremely happy with the success of their moves, but life has gotten nowhere near easy! Kers is being harassed by the school principal Zeger who has feelings for her. Sam's husband Najib finds her cash in a kitchen drawer and is getting quite suspicious. Reneetje is spending money like water and, worse of all, Lot falls in love with Achilles, a police officer. Tighter and tighter, the women are getting trapped. They decide to make one last big hit, but that robbery gets terribly out of hand... Written by Katerstaart

Not a clear direction for the Amazones.
11 June 2005 | by tvalstar99See all my reviews

The movie starts as a social drama with humor. But then the director does not seem to know which direction to go. Sometimes it is a drama, sometimes a comedy and at one point it is an action flick. Usually this causes confusion with the audience and the movie will not get any better. There is some humor, but not very good. Near the end I didn't really had a good idea which way the movie was going to. The plot is also way too cliché (the song Nobody's Wife by Anouk contributes to this). Not a bad effort, but next time the director has to make up her mind. Just a nice TV-movie.

The acting is nice by the way. I sometimes had some trouble with the accent (from the province Noord-Brabant).
