A thriller "light" with many pentagram affairs
21 November 2012 | by fuzaporlapizaSee all my reviews

I haven't read the book but I did read the negative reviews before watching this movie. Therefore I was prepared for the worst. It's not a movie to see if you're tired and better do not drink any alcohol neither since you will need a clear brain to puzzle your way through the story. It's more like a mix of detective and soap than a heavy thriller.

The story centers around a girl who moved with her husband and two kids to a nice and very wealthy district of a Dutch town. Soon she is introduced in a club formed by neighbors, the "Dinner club". When the problems arrive she finds out that not anybody gets along with everybody.
