Originally, Ann Petersen was to play Gerda. Unfortunately, Petersen died before shooting had begun. She was replaced by Viviane de Muynck, and old student of hers at theatre school. See more »
If you have seen previous films of this director you should know what to expect: boring, superficial and totally superfluous "cinema". It is a disgrace that this kind of rubbish is made by Belgian tax money.
There is one pro what I could think of: there are not too many movies about older people. Nevertheless they should deserve a better treatment than this.
Lieven Debrauwer is seeking for an audience which is easy to get, disguised as intellectual drama but fails miserably in his attempt.
If someone can tell me why this is worth seeing in the cinema, he's got my respect because to my humble opinion you can watch this sort of trash at daily soap on television.
