The 19 lives of Jan
9 October 2018 | by franka_van_loonSee all my reviews

This film is so over dramatized and so totally exaggerated, that the end result of this film is more like a comedy than a drama, maybe Harald Zwart should be the director of a new Marvel-movie. The 19 lives of Jan would have an more suitable name for this film. I liked that the everyone was speaking their own language, and not some stupid american accent. The nature shots are beautiful.
