ldh's review

What a wonderfully funny and perverse story of a family looking so great from the outside, but filled with twists and turns and secrets on the inside. A great cast and quick pace makes this 50mn short film a wonderful experience. I just wish they had made a TV series out of this as i can definitely imagine another 3 or 4h of story there. Yet, at the same time, the execution is so condensed with rapid-fire editing throughout that there is not a single minute of dull time. Verhoeven is as usual such a great director and managed to stay on to with this somewhat-improvisational project where the script was actually written by a collective based on an initial idea.
