      A somewhat chaotic and not too believable story of an imaginary Dutchpolitician who is caught in the turmoil of current (2008 – 2010) Dutchpolitics. Neither fully entertaining nor completely moralistic, butwith everything added up still enjoyable, so I rate it 6 out of 10stars.

      The film starts in typical Eddy Terstall style with rapid switchingbetween characters and equally rapid and witty dialog. Later it slowsdown and focuses on the main character, Jos Franssen, head of animaginary left-wing Dutch political party who is heavily influenced bythe family of his son-in-law and lurches to the political right, to thehorror of his fellow party members. Terstall mixes politics andpersonal life, like a real politician would experience it, though heseems to want to try to hit as many themes as possible in the limitedtime that the film allows. Too much is happening and the Franssencharacter is too much of a wind-vane to be believable, but it is a nicekaleidoscope of current political sentiments. At the end the directortops it off with a clear (and commendable, in my view) politicalstatement that to me is a bit forced and detached from the rest of thefilm, though some may say otherwise.

      This film portrays Dutch politics, especially the current situation. Itwill mostly appeal to Dutch viewers, also because the appearances ofnumerous well-known Dutch journalists and entertainers, who give thefilm a very real feel.
