A psychological thriller, based on one of the most controversial court cases in the Netherlands. Lucia, a nurse, is sentenced to life imprisonment for allegedly having killed at least seven babies and elderly people.Written by
Whistle-Blower Metta de Noo, who spent years trying to prove that Lucia was innocent, was disappointed with the outcome of this movie. In an interview with RTV Oost she stated that the case was way more complex than is shown in the movie. It's striking that in the movie the real life whistle-blowers are replaced with a fictitious young female character who worked at the OM. The 'fictitious young character at the OM' is an amalgam of Metta de Noo (and her brother) and a real-life but never identified OM-staffmember, who called Lucia's lawyer. The call boiled down to: "Your client is in prison. But we were wrong. We made a mistake." Unfortunately, there is only 90 minutes to tell a story - and to tell it in a dramatically satisfying way, so some of the (complex) elements are lost. See more »
