Storyline

Businessman Christian Vandenheuvel planned to spend the long weekend with his young mistress, Lisa. Instead, they're taken hostage by Jos Diels and Nick, two of the 46 laborers who lost their job recently when Christian had his family firm bankrupted. Each victim fails to escape, even the fire alarm doesn't get them freed. After Jos realizes the mistress is his only daughter, and Nick falls in love with Lisa, the masked men's mood evolves as they progress to truth time, when the police arrives. Written by KGF Vissers

Why go for Fonny?
15 October 2005 | by jappegoodSee all my reviews

Verlengd weekend is about two workers of a closed down factory who hold their boss hostage in his mansion. The movie is shot on a very low budget, even for a Belgian one. But- as the producer said in the advance screening-it doesn't show. Jan Decleir is as great as ever, and so are the other actors. The writing is full of funny one liners, maybe one to many, but hey, it's a social comedy (dixit Koen De Bouw. Expect some laughs, even some the scriptwriter didn't intend. I enjoyed this movie, but it was very hard to overcome the very irritating cheap keyboard music by Fonny De Wulf. He gets the award for ruining a perfectly good movie, especially the beginning (very Flikken-esquire) and the end (melodrama anyone?). If only they had spend more on the music...
