Trivia

After the opening scene, the fake credits for Leo's quiz show list a 'Mick Daas' as being responsible for the music. This is an obvious nod to director Dick Maas, who always scores his own movies. See more »

Dick Maas did it again
30 March 2012 | by davidbeckers137See all my reviews

I chose to see this movie because I had seen all the other ones playing at the time. I am glad I did, because it is a master piece. It is low budget, but thats OK. I don't need Michael Bay explosions. Low budget movies have to focus on a good idea, a good story. Combine that with excellent acting performances and the result is this movie. The only time you saw this was low budget, was when a cop said one sentence and you spontaneously face palmed yourself out of shame for his lack of talent. It is a thriller filled with hilarious conversations. A must see. The only small remark I have was the fact that there was no nudity. What was that all about? A Dutch movie from Dick Maas and no nudity?
