AANMODDERFAKKER

NETHERLANDS · 100 MINS · 2014 · COMEDY DRAMA

Actor Gijs Naber shines as Thijs, a slacker in his mid-20s, utterly unsure about his life, or what to do with it. He has had love and lost it, had career opportunities and squandered them; he has a doting mother, who he can’t relate to and a flat mate who he can’t bear to live with. In fact, he just can’t fit in with what modern life has to offer him. Against the odds, he finds a spark in a most unexpected relationship.
