In the Rotterdam harbor an oil tanker explodes. Is it Muslim terrorism?
14 May 2005 | by arnoldkoSee all my reviews

In the Rotterdam harbor an oil tanker explodes. In this post-9/11 era, everybody immediately assumes it's a terrorist's attack. The next morning a young Moroccon and his blond girlfriend are lifted from their bed by the police. The girlfriend gets out of custody soon, thanks to her lawyer-dad, and the long search for her friend and for the truth starts. The movie fits in the current wave of movies about the tensions in the Dutch multi-cultural society. It's a good one in its genre, I think. Good acting, good pace, nice plot (though a bit predictable). In any other genre it would be classified as crafty (at best), but the political and social subject matter makes it interesting. The movie was shot before the murder of Theo van Gogh, which is remarkable because after the murder the general public became aware of terrorist cells, with young Moroccons participating, focusing on Dutch soil. Theo van Gogh, BTW, who earlier that year made a very good movie ("Cool") in the same genre.
