Don't romanticize crime and thugs
I tried to watch it an hour or so but couldn't finish the job. I've lived and worked in the area called Kanaleineiland (where this takes place) and know what that's like. In this movie the criminals are portrayed as charismatic bad guys with a certain charm but I can tell you: there is no charm! Those criminals are utter scum and don't deserve a romanticized movie about their lives. Their lives are wasted and of no use for society. A generation lost. They have no moral codes, no 'honor amongst thieves' or anything like it. They prey on innocent women, children, hell.. anyone! Steeling, cursing, lying, hating, stabbing, shooting, robbing, destroying.. This movie should have shown them for what they are: cowards, lazy useless tumors of society. Instead it tries to show they actually have a heart.. but they don't. For them, every woman is a prostitute, except maybe their own mothers. Skip this awful propaganda and spend your time on something useful.
