Good, but hard to digest
25 February 2017 | by ArconadaSee all my reviews

At the moment of writing the rating for this movie is 5.9. I believe it should be higher. The movie is very fragmented and therefor it is hard to get into the story, but when you do you're not disappointed.

The movie consists of two parts. First, it starts with a story of a tormented woman trying to find something in the truckers world. Wende Snijders plays this woman, and everybody who already know her from her singing career, knows that she is able to tell a story with just her face. She is exactly right for the role. Whatever the mood, depressed, sad, tired, enjoyed, she can put it in her face. The movie starts with a surreal scene of her next to her car in a canal looking at a cheetah on the water's edge. It ends with a stolen dog being killed by a truck. The second part is a flash-back. It explains why the stealing of the dog is so dramatic, why she is not able to take care of a little girl for a while when she is asked to, and why she pursues that quest in the trucker world.

The structure of the movie seems odd, first a story about the searching woman, followed by a flash back, an explanation how it came to be. But by doing so, the editor was able to use a dramatic scene as the end of the movie. And that really increased the tension.

A clever made, well acted movie, that requires some effort and attention to watch it.
