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

Excellent acting
21 December 2006 | by Hans-56See all my reviews

The story of this movie is not bad, but doesn't excel either. No it is the actrices who make this film outstanding indeed. Four of the best actrices in Holland play excellent roles. Verbaan, the Lolita of the Low Countries, surpasses herself. The well established Van de Ven, who you may know from Turkish Delight, the best movie ever made in Holland in the 20th century, is very good indeed. Hendrickx is good. But the best part is for Visser. She acts so well, that even I fell in love with her. Don't take this movie seriously though, it is just a fine, relaxing afternoon thriller. Certainly not a serious attempt to add something to human cultural heritage in general.
