Trivia

At one point in the movie family Albrecht are at home eating an Indonesian rice dish. In the original plan the family would be eating a casserole, but a member of the public suggested they should eat the rice dish. The art department decided this would be even better for continuity reasons, actors could just scoop back their helping after each take without changing the shape of the food. See more »

Short and sweet
22 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Maybe sweet is the wrong word to use, especially when it comes to a movie made by Paul Verhoeven. But I really liked this one. It may be predictable (to a point), but it is a fun watch, with some really good moments. It's not PC (expected), but it's also very short, running just under an hour.

Paul wanted to stay active so he made this movie, while waiting for a bigger job to happen. That doesn't mean he just went ahead and made it fast and without planning. There is a making of on the DVD that shows you the preparation he took and how he planned a lot of things. He treated this like a feature length even though it wasn't. It's also "european", so expect nudity and other things in it
