During a scorching summer in a Belgian-Dutch border village, eight teenagers play games of discovery to break the listless monotony. They challenge each other and themselves and pretty soon, their sexual curiosity starts to blur the lines between right and wrong. As innocence is crushed in depraved games and sexual exploitation, the teenagers soon turn into ruthless predators.

User Reviews

Very entertaining movie
30 September 2019 | by pieterluxmanSee all my reviews

I enjoyed watching the movie. Nice to see a movie that does not follow the cliches or take itself to seriously. I can't believe I never heard of this movie before. Way better then the over hyped "De Premier" movie.

The movie starts great, loses momentum after 1/4, but picks up halfway to the end. The scenes were well done, but the way they combine was a bit messy, that is my only complaint.

Very good acting, the 8 kids were played very convincingly.

Overall great and entertaining movie, not the best, but a breath of fresh air in times were lots of mediocre movies come out all the time.
