Truly a rare gem
This is a very intense movie about love, hate, life and death with a lot of symbolism and realism at the same time. The plot is located in the early 70ies in Amsterdam and features Monique van de Ven and Rutger Hauer who give a really great performance. The supporting actors are also very well chosen and there are no lengthy parts in the story that can make you laugh and cry at the same time.

There are few movies that are able to create an atmosphere that intense. But be warned - this movie polarizes - either you love it or you hate it.

I'll rate it a 9 out of 10.
