Teenagers with life-threatening cancer want to live like any healthy 15-year-old. At the hospital they share fun and sorrow together. They jokingly call themselves "Sickos". Three teenagers appear to have a lot of fun on the children's oncology department on the fourth floor of a large hospital. Nick (14) and Iwan (15) both lost a leg as a result of bone cancer. For their friend Olivier (16) an amputation may be the next phase. The fourth of the bunch, Pepijn (15), is so ill and weak that he often stays in his room. Friendship and a deep desire to live keeps the guys mentally balanced. And of course their interest in sexy girls makes them act like any ordinary teenager. They make jokes about their illness. They call each other "sickos". The sicko's cannot walk, but with their wheelchairs they do risky stunts and organize joyrides in the corridors of the hospital. Their friendship changes when Gina (16) arrives. The boys try to seduce her, but Gina is not interested at first, until she... Written by AnonymousB

Very emotional film
14 January 2015 | by pracht_8See all my reviews

I'm so into this movie. Lately, i have had calf injuries, so i couldn't dance all day and night like i would have liked to. Therefore i started watching a lot of films, which have helped me through this terrible time. This movie, 'kankerlijers', in particular has helped me greatly in overcoming these calf injuries. The film is funny and emotional at the same time; it makes me cry every time i watch it again. Actors did a great job on this one, therefore i rate it 10/10. It would have been even better if they had casted Nicolas Cage for the lead role, but unfortunately they didn't. I know that they have asked Seagal to play in this film, but he refused apparently due to the fact that his salary wasn't going to be high enough for his standards, which are obviously really high since he is one of the best actors Hollywood has ever produced.
