Did You Know?
In the scene where Henk (Juda Goslinga
) tells Frankie that his mother has passed away, Frankie's (Robert de Hoog
) nose starts to bleed. This was pure and natural and was not planned. The actor whiped away the blood but continued to play the scene. Eventually this take made it into the final cut. See more
