Storyline

BILAL (17), GREGG (17) and KEV (18) can't wait for 'real life' to finally begin. While the three boys are all driven by a compelling lust for life, they friends couldn't be more different. Bilal dreams big, is a force of nature with heaps of self confidence and no regard for rules. Gregg is of a more sound mind, Bilals calm counterpart. Kevin is young for his age and struggling to be more self confident. In De Libi Bilal, Gregg and Kev are driven apart by the looming end of high school life, only to finally learn their friendship doesn't depend on their chosen paths.

Great vibe
27 July 2019 | by ceggSee all my reviews

From the very beginning of De Libi, I kept on thinking to myself "ah yes, if I get asked next time how it is to live in Amsterdam, I have this movie to show as a response". More than anything, it seemed to capture the vibe really well. I don't think it would be as entertaining for Dutch people themselves as it is if you are a foreigner, but there's a lot of the humor to relate to for sure if you are watching as a kind of an outsider. Special round of applause to the actors. There were some nuanced layers in the characters that not everyone can deliver. I ran into this movie accidentally, so I had zero expectations. It's not going to be my next favorite movie, but I'm glad it exists.
