A 32-year-old waster and eternal student, Thijs, leads a slovenly, relaxed life full of beer, chicks and the occasional shift at a tedious media megastore. When Thijs visits his sister's house to do some washing, instead of his usual encounter with her semi-perfect family, he meets Lisa, the baby-sitter: a mature sixteen-year-old with exorbitant ambitions. Without intending to, Lisa has a profound effect on Thijs, unveiling a deeply ingrained dissatisfaction with his own passive behaviour.
I actually really liked this movie. It may be looking boring but there is a lot going on. Not that everything goes in depth but this is a dutch movie and emotions are shared slightly differently. I was really pleasantly curious to see the main character (Thijs) evolving through the movie. Really if you want to have an insight on how emotions are lived in the Netherlands, this is to me an excellent movie. Not too complicated and yet full surprises.
