top notch acting ; mediocre scenario
14 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

Gone are the days that Dutch film consisted mainly of profanity , mediocre acting and loads of random nudity. 'Alles is familie' (All is family) thrives on top notch acting of the entire cast, led by our brightest of stars, Carice. The first 20 minutes made little impact and it took a while to get spinning into higher gear. This a typical film that gets better once it gets going and the second half was captivating. The scenario (by Kim van Kooten) is not the brightest, but who cares with this level of acting. Plenty of laughs, some very touching moments and very, very good music in places. (And of course, it is good to notice that Kim manages to keep half her family employed) Center of it all, obviously is Carice. She sulks, she grins, half the cinema (or more) drowns in those eyes. She's the Dutch It-girl and every film profits..
