Frensch de Groot,
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
Poorly directed film. There's never any real drama. Everything feels stiff and scripted.
Example: when Melissa arrives in an ambulance at the hospital, the nurse tells Jordi he can't join the hospital crew in the elevator. Dead words. Jordi should have been trying hard to get into the elevator with the medical staff. After all he's very concerned about Melissa!
Another example: when Melissa's mother blames her husband for his daughter's disappearance, he calmly replies "oh, so all my fault". Any father would have exploded at such an accusation coming from his wife!
I'm sure a better director would have been able to get better performances from these promising actors.
