Storyline

Dutchman Lucien runs a boxing gym, as if 'his' kids' future were largely his responsibility. Since his wife and daughter died in a car accident, fro which he needlessly blames himself, he rather neglects sole surviving son Mitchell. The teen knave largely leads his own life, but conflict always lingers. Even the gym folk side with Mitchell when Lucien attacks his son just for wearing a tutu at an informal garden barbecue.

With two feet on the ground.
22 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

This film is a very real life story with no special effects but it's still intriguing. Not everything is logical but then again, it's the same in life. Several 'hints' in the movie in certain directions aren't followed up so the entire movie looks a bit messy. It doesn't have a lot of 'speed' but for viewing it on a Sunday morning it's perfect.

It's nice to see that the characters are no heroes nor bad guys but just ordinary people. (I wonder what the casting director thought: the father and son don't look a like one single bit, maybe Mitchel was adopted?)

For people who think that in The Netherlands 'the sun always shines', please go see this movie.
