Storyline

Johan Dros is born as eleventh consecutive son of soccer-obsessed pa Rinus, who raises his boys mainly as the small island Texel's team. Johan's rare reprieves from training for a sport he doesn't care for cease when ma dies. After captain brother Johhny sort of steals his local girl-friend Evy, Johan leaves for Amsterdam, where he becomes a hairdresser and would-be singer. Soccer, a vocal TV talent-hunt and Evy will bring them all together again, but also raise unprecedented strife in the Dros family. Written by KGF Vissers

Johan
3 November 2005 | by ireneireneireneireneirenSee all my reviews

Johan is a funny movie. Just sit down, relax and watch. The music and the images makes it worth looking. And also the story is pretty funny. But if you're not from the Netherlands, I think you're not gonna catch all the inside jokes. For example; The father of Johan, Rienus, wants to have his own soccer team. So he gets 11 boys. His name comes from Rienus Michels, a famous Dutch soccer star. And Johan is from Johan Cruiff of course. If you have a chance to see this movie and you just want to laugh and see a good looking person from Holland, just go and see it. You won't regret it, just don't expect anything, because it's still from the Netherlands. But this time from a realistic point of view, and not just drugs and hores.
