Sex and swearing are the main problem of dutch cinema. It's very common here, to disguise the amateur level of most movies with it. This movie is a typical example of a common dutch movie. The book is great, Ronald Giphart is an excellent writer. The movie is very bad, without dimensions in characters/storyline/dialogs. It's a pain to watch, so I recommend it if you're too happy for the moment. Technical speaking, the movie is also not acceptable. Most time, you can't hear Giphs voice because it's just to soft. Also some very basic cinema rules are just ignored. Bad headroom, bad lightning and wrong misleading camera angles. Overall, the movie frustrated me while viewing. Don't like it in any way.
