Storyline

Schoolboy Jordi has to work two jobs, as hospital cleaner and car-wash attendant. Still he bends over backwards to help his classmates, especially utter ingrate Melissa. The spoiled but emotional daughter of a snobbish pa who looks down on 'common, horny' Jordi by her own admission has only one talent: dancing. When she gets a chance to dance in a video, she shamelessly abuses and ignores Jordi. Instead she hooks up with other dancers, who drag her along in ecstasy abuse 'to dance better'. Soon she's such a social and medical mess even dad comes beg Jordi to help find and cure her. Written by KGF Vissers

The dutch after-school special on Ecstacy- inaccurate, boring, and untalented.
18 February 2007 | by dilbertsupermanSee all my reviews

This is a film that is basically an after-school special television quality flick supposed to show us the horrors of Ecstasy but it lacks the balls to show anything real and the entire thing is just a lack of plot, talent and accuracy. The whole thing feels wrong- as if the people writing the script and directing the scenes have no clue about the subject matter or don't have the balls to present it in a realistic format.

The dancing is pretty sad for the most part- the plot is about a young hip hop dancer who aspires for greatness, only to meet a good looking dancer with lots of Ecstasy. After that happens we get a lot of standard issue home drama scenes- the clueless concerned parents, the rebellious addict teen, etc.. this is all cookie cutter suburban viewpoint garbage- it is poorly acted, lacks any real detail or realism to the subject matter and all in all is a complete and utter waste of time. Go see "Fucking Amal" instead.
