Trivia

The film is a free interpretation of the rise and (especially) decline of the Dutch software company Baan van de Baan brothers. The company with a strict Christian background was from about 1985 to 2000 located in Barneveld on the Veluwe. After a listing on the American stock exchange had been applied for, it turned out that all sorts of financial matters had not been properly arranged; the initial success was based on quicksand. The company was saved from bankruptcy when it was bought by an English company. See more »

Brilliant movie
27 August 2006 | by Nonie65See all my reviews

A brilliant movie based on a true story with some fiction to get a great movie! Brilliant acting! The true story-part of this movie is of course the fall of the brothers Baan with their company Baan (in the movie the brothers Van Der Laan). For years the stock Baan was one of the great moneymakers and the two deeply religious brothers were even capable of reaching the Nasdaq. Kees Prins, Pierre Bokma, Monique Hendrickx and many others are very convincing in playing a strict religious family in the town Putten on the Veluwe. The fictional parts of this movie are as touching as a good movie should be! This movie is an absolute must for fans of European movies.
