A remake worthy of Romeo and Julia
25 September 2009 | by guidofalcosSee all my reviews

Finally a Dutch feature film that exceeds expectations. The film retells the story (originally a book, then an opera, and then a film in 1919). The story is, as can be expected with a history like that, timeless. A classic tragedy, hence the title of this post. And I did not even exaggerate! The story is not only still good and relevant for the Zeitgeist, the update to Rotterdam in 2009 only adds to the allure. The acting, mainly provided by veterans from Holland and led by Tygo Gernandt, is great. There are a few weaker roles, sometimes because of the lines they have to utter, sometimes because of the actors. Cinematography is amazing, as are the colors. In special I have to mention the music. A couple of dutch rappers, who all worked with Perquisite (check him out!). He is amazing on his albums, and now we can officially say he is the to-go to man for film music. The leading lady (Sanguita Akkrum) sings pretty awesome too! Any way, i'm not usually this enthusiastic about Dutch films, so I can't stress enough that this is the one2watch.
