A film that does everything right
27 October 2005 | by jelte_nieuwenhuisSee all my reviews

What talent, what brilliance! And of course, I'm not talking about Fedja van Huet now. We already knew he's one of the most talented actors in Holland. I'm talking about the brilliant and beautiful leading actress Maria Kraakman, who does everything right in this film. But most of all I'm talking about Nanouk Leopold, an amazingly talented filmmaker who wrote an impeccable script and did everything right in directing the film. Every shot is exactly right, its length, its point of view, its framing, the sound, or the lack of it. The most beautiful film about silence, about not speaking, that I have ever seen. Every scene can be interpreted in different ways, is full of tender nuance without getting boring a single moment. A highlight in Dutch film history, maybe the best Dutch picture ever made.
