A thoroughly intriguing and entertaining movie-going experience
5 February 2014 | by MCinAmsterdamSee all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing this film at Amsterdam's Eye Filmmuseum, and can heartily recommend the experience. Game delivers a great story with surprises and twists and a taut suspense line throughout. The acting is great, and intelligent use is made of the (essentially) single location - a handsome canal house on one of Amsterdam's beautiful inner 'grachten'.

Most important to remember, to my mind however, is how much these filmmakers managed to achieve given so little - time, money, and general resources - to complete their film. This is movie-making by professionals who know how to craft a solid story in the writing phase, how to act it and dress it in the shooting phase, and how to craft it again in the last phase of editing and post-production.

Hats off to one and all who were involved, and shame on you to many larger studios and production houses who pour millions into projects, only to have them deliver movies one tenth as enjoyable as Game. Find a screening or hassle the filmmakers to stage a screening, and see this film!
