A loving story about hope
8 October 2019 | by casa_de_angelSee all my reviews

In times where diversity ranks as high as it can get in The Netherlands and stereotypes are as ever actual, DE BELOFTE VAN PISA has its lead Sam invested in a search for hope to leave his natural habitat in search for a meaningful life, away from crime and those same stereotypes. Its lead Shahine el Hamus transforms effortless and gives a touching debut. Together with its flairy direction, contrasting colors and a overtly present musical score, DE BELOFTE VAN PISA succeeds and delivers. You walk out of the theatre feeling hopeful. Based on the bestselling book written by Mano Bouzamour.
