The film is set in the Netherlands with Dutch characters, but was entirely shot in UK (in Norfolk, Suffolk and at Pinewood Studios) and there's no Dutch actors in it. See more »
Before you were born, Amsterdam was captivated by a flower: the tulip. They came from far away in the East and were so rare and beautiful that people lost their senses in wanting to own them.

Oh, how the mighty had fallen for this nonsensical romance. Even the great actors and actresses such as Alicia Vikander, Judi Dench and Christoph Waltz couldn't save this historical period romance misfire. Even Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne is involved in another follow-up misfire (Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets). Perhaps there is more to meet the wilted tulip in its detail; Talk about on its crappy Fifty Shades of Grey-styled sex scenes between Vikander and DeHaan which NO ONE is buying it (not sexy and spicy) and probably the chemistry is very muddled and confusing at the same time. Even the screenplay from the acclaimed screenwriter, Tom Stoppard is completely wasted.
Making matters worst is the execution of the film which is messy and crappy at the same time. Plus the dialogue and the performances is laughable and wooden. Truly this unfortunate misfire which anyone could be thinking that the film is Oscar-bait is not worthy of an Oscar and instead serves as a big embarrassment to the cast but not Alicia Vikander, Judi Dench and Christoph Waltz for there are some good-quality films that are involved that can make them forget their participation in this wilted movie mess and probably this terrible historical nonsense garbage is just added to the worst movies of 2017 so far.
