a good comedy

Edgar has been a waiter for 25 years. He is getting bored with his life and will start to change things around, after meeting the man who is behind his life's events.

The movie is hilarious at the beginning; unfortunately it slowly goes downhill after an hour or so. However, it is still a great comedy, if you appreciate dark comedies. It's totally absurd, and that's what makes it so... read more

Since ‘Grimm’ turned out to be rather disappointing, I did lower my expectations for this movie. Fortunately, Alex van Warmerdam made a nice come-back with this movie and, even though it was still far from being his best movie,  I still enjoyed most of it.

“Since ‘Grimm’ turned out to be rather disappointing, I did lower my expectations for this movie. Fortunately, Alex van Warmerdam made a nice come-back with this movie and, even though it was still far from being his best movie,  I still enjoyed most of it. Basically, it all started as a rather average tale about an average guy who was working as a waiter but, apparently, van Warmerdam was aware that this tale was pretty weak so he added a layer of metafiction on top of it. Well, even though the meta thing was pretty neat, the whole thing became seriously random and, with these scenes,  it was rather hit and miss, to be honest. For example, sure, it was pretty neat that the writer would get involved in his own story but his girlfriend as well? Furthermore, even though I have a weak sp” read more
