A romantic comedy about the adventures of Nordip Doenia, a clever young Moroccan guy in The Netherlands. His parents destine him for great things, but Nordip clearly has different ideas. He takes up a simple job far below his level as a dishwasher in a big motel. There, he falls in love with Agnes, the niece of the motel owner. But Agnes faces the same parental pressure as Nordip: she is destined to take over the motel in the future, but she doesn't have ambitions for this. The love relationship between Nordip and Agnes is doomed to failure, unless Nordip can convince Agnes in going her own way, against her parent's wishes.Written by
Achmed Akkabi did a screen-test for the leading part (Nordip), but did not get it. Later he did get the leading part in De president (2011) the movie that the producers (Lemming Film) tried to sell as a sequel (it was also a book with a multi cultural angle, written by Khalid Boudou.

I didn't like this movie. I thought this was a comedy but it seems more like a romantic film. The end was too predictable. I think the only one who really deserves a whole lot of respect is Tygo. He plays a real freak, which is quite an effort. All the other actors just play someone really close to themselves. Further more I'd like the character Ali, who was the only one I felt sorry for in the movie and the only one I sometimes even had to laugh about. The music video of this movie: Wat wil je doen dan by the Partysquad and a league of dutch rappers contains like nearly all the funny parts of the movie. It wasn't that much a waste of my time, although I think that there are a whole lot of movies that I should have watched in stead.
