2 November 2004, shortly before nine in the morning. In The Hague, the report comes in that in Amsterdam Theo van Gogh has been murdered. All warning bells start ringing. With the country in flames, sometimes literally, politicians and officials in The Hague have to neutralise all sorts of known and unknown stings, and just when Van Gogh’s cremation seems to herald a period of relative peace, a second explosion follows: the attack on the Hofstad Network in the Laakkwartier in The Hague. A reconstruction of nine days of political high tension and flying dust, a decade after the assassination of the trendsetting filmmaker and TV presenter.

Michael O (nl) wrote: Completely bananas! No Sicilian sin, hypocrisy, social more, or injustice is left unturned and when uncovered you're slapped in the face twice for even laughing. This is a very funny movie especially today because, at least I hope, italy was a foreign, foreign place in the 60s. It felt like another planet where laws and bylaws and ancient macho traditions basically toss two families around fueled by their own obsessions to adhere to the very arcane laws that oppress them. Very interesting and inspiring.

Jamie I (kr) wrote: For this Disney movie Russell Brand's humor is (if we can compare it to salsa) mild and not fiery hot. Adam Sandler is given a tremendous supporting cast in this flick which consists of Keri Russell, Russell Brand, (Hot) Lucy Lawless and Courtney Cox-Arquetteand I think they are what add to the humor. This movie was funny and not too laden with the wholesomenessDisney usually shoves down our throat. In the end I recommend this one.
Nicki M (br) wrote: Absolute mess of a movie. And this from someone who actually quite likes Katherine Heigl. Thank goodness I didn't buy this one before watching, as I was tempted to. A too perfect wife discovers her husband has had a fling with an employee, who has now announced she is pregnant and is demanding money from him. Rather than leave him, she decides to fix the problem herself. Katherine looks awful in this - actually hard to look at, and her character is a psycho bitch too, but not in a good way. (I am not saying she is unattractive, but the hair, makeup and wardrobe is very harsh on her and not flattering). Though the story itself had potential, and normally I enjoy this type of psycho/black comedy film, it is not well done and so leaps from one ridiculous situation to the next, none of it remotely interesting. The acting is pretty poor all around. Just does not work at all on any level.

Antonius B (gb) wrote: It's San Francisco in the 1970's, and a single mom's bohemian lifestyle leads to one of her boyfriend's having a sexual relationship with her teenage daughter, who opens the film proudly proclaiming "I had sex today ... Holy shit."Despite the statutory rape, drug use, and free use of profanity which may put some people off, this coming-of-age movie is empowering, with several positive messages - embrace your creativity, maintain your self-worth, remember that enjoying sex as a woman doesn't make you a slut, experimentation is ok and you can run away from bad situations, and through it all, you don't need someone else to love you, but you have to love yourself.The animation that is woven into the movie is beautiful, such as when the girl is on an LSD drip and imagines herself to have wings and to be hovering above the room. Her diary is also sometimes quite poetic, for example, "It would've been better to have slept and dreamed than to watch the night pass and the slow moon sink."Bel Powley turns in a great performance, beautifully balancing the girl and emerging woman within, expressing herself with her eyes, and delivering truth in a wide range of emotional moments, some of which are fairly new ground for mainstream cinema. There is quite a bit of nudity, which can be uncomfortable as the character is 15 years old (though Powley herself was 23), but it doesn't at all feel like exploitation in director Marielle Heller's hands, and seeing a body type that is different from the prescribed Hollywood and fashion-industry definition of 'beauty' is refreshing - for Powley truly is beautiful. Alexander Skarsgrd, who fans of 'True Blood' will recognize, is suitably "confused", conflicted, childish, manipulative, and licentious all at once, and his nuanced performance was very important to making the movie successful. Kristen Wiig is solid as the mom who dispenses inappropriate advice, and who's partying ways don't exactly serve as a great role model.I like how the girl explores her sexuality as a boy might ("Do other people think about fucking as much as I do?"), and doesn't end up pregnant or crushed, even though the object of her affections for much of the movie is 20 years older, which, while cringe-inducing, feels brutally honest. And, in the end, despite how the adults in her life have let her down, and despite all of the difficulties in growing up, we know that she's not only going to be all right, but that she's going to fly.
