Brasserie Valentine is a stylish, funny film about love. About first dates, falling in love and love anniversaries. About love under pressure of daily grind and distrust. And lovingly prepared food. All in one evening on Valentine's Day.
Egbert Jan Weeber,
Tessa opens her luxurious clinic with a big party. She is smart, beautiful, savvy, and happily married with an intelligent adolescent son. But appearances are deceptive. In reality, her marriage is falling apart, her house renovation is a disaster and the finances of her clinic are a mess. Desperate, she accepts the helping hand of a friend from the past who has turned up suddenly, but in doing so, opens herself up to an ordeal of terror and blackmail.Written by
De Verbouwing is a nice, not too complicated Dutch thriller. With a lot of familiar faces from television dramas like Goede Tijden, Vuurzee, Gooische Vrouwen. Having said that, the film also feels like a television drama. It is smooth, well acted, not much action, but tense at times. The music reminded me very much of the soundtrack of "Basic Instinct'. Tjitske has a lot of screen time and handles it very well. No Oscar material but very worth watching. From the book by Saskia Noort with the same title. Save it for a rainy afternoon and you will have a good time. And for foreign viewers remember: Dutch viewers very much like to trash their own movies, so the average rating and criticism seem rather typical but says more about the viewers than the movie.
