Fun documentary about a Dutch filmmaker, even if you're unfamiliar with his work.
21 October 2020 | by Weary76See all my reviews

If you're Dutch and born before 2010, you know filmmaker Dick Maas. On average, he may not have huge international succes. But in The Netherlands he's had multiple hit films, including the number one biggest boxoffice succes "Flodder".

This documentary shows his past and works its way forward to Dick Maas's most recent film "Prooi" which became an unexpected hit in China. All his films, his tv- series, and his own studio, come to pass along with some details that were never shared before. It also shows that if you're up for making bigger screen stories, The Netherlands isn't very welcoming or cooperative (Dutch director Paul Verhoeven didn't flee to Hollywood for the warm weather).

At the end of the film you have a good sense of what kind of man Dick Maas is, and his personal growth as a filmmaker.
