Storyline

Rem's Amsterdam family lives a nightmare since his father got an alcohol abuse problem related to working for multinational Heineken's brewery distribution and was fired before it became terminal. Rem learns that his bully work colleague Cor is planning to kidnap a businessman with two freak acolytes. Rem convinces them to let him in and aim higher, beer king Alfred Heineken himself, after being nearly run over and left with a token banknote by his driver. They pretend having taken Heineken and his driver to Germany and cash a huge ransom. Heineken hires private detectives and pushes the Dutch and French police, who soon capture the gang. The faulty extradition treaty, up for revision but too late, prevents a Dutch trail for Rem and Cor, but the French authorities fly them to the French half of Antillian island St.Martin and Heineken's cash is spread liberally in a plot to drive the pair over the island border, on Dutch soil.

Trivia

The kidnapper named "Rem Hubrechts" was actually named Willem Holleeder. There actually was a fifth kidnapper, not shown in the movie, called Martin "Remmetje" Erkamps. They used his nickname and gave it to Hubrechts because they couldn't use the name Willem Holleeder because he is still around and threatened with a law suit if they used his name in the movie.

Goofs

In the pub, the song "Ik verscheurde je foto" by Koos Alberts is played. This song was recorded and released in 1984, months after the kidnapping took place. See more »

Pretty good...
3 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

For a dutch film, this is a must see. The aging icon of dutch cinema, rutger hauer, gives another solid performance. This movie was pretty good n all, but still some things wrong with it, mostly the pacing... acting,scripting, suspense building, all top notch. The cinematography is good,and the music makes a good atmosphere. But from time to time i was still looking at my watch... scenes are drawn out too long and the interesting bits are unfortunately, infrequent. Overall a decent attempt with a good outcome of a film.

Enjoy -
