I went to this movie not knowing anything about the plot but I am familiar with the humor of H. Finkers; a well known dutch comedian most known for his influences and connections from the eastern dutch 'Twentsch' area where he also resides. In fact this entire movie plays in that area of the Netherlands as well as Germany (but anyone from 'Twente' is pretty well known with the locations).
The plot is simple and the message subtle. I don't want to spoil it for anyone but it is mainly about relationships and what we look for in our partners and how these things can change over time. The movie explains this sometimes with humor and sometimes with emotion.
I like Finkers subtle sense of humor, he makes you listen to what is being said in order to catch the humor he's trying to express. It isn't in your face and the sketches all have to do with the message of the film; it has purpose.
Watching this as someone familiar with the culture I had some great laughs and could recognize a lot of the situations. It even made me realize that sometimes I act just as ridiculous as the actors. Summed up it made me a but more self aware.
The acting is great, the plot although sometimes slow is very entertaining.
The musical score was very good as well.
It is a great family film with a message, not amazing but for a dutch movie it was very good.
