      Justin Chang Variety A slender, morally simplified fable that makes up for its tonal and narrative imprecisions with considerable visual energy, musical pizzazz, and a panoply of colorful characters ... Aug 17, 2015 Full Review Brian Tallerico RogerEbert.com While "Prince" feels a little slight when the credits roll less than 80 minutes after it begins, it's still a strong, creative addition to the crowded coming-of-age genre. Rated: 3/4 Aug 14, 2015 Full Review Michael Rechtshaffen Los Angeles Times Although the disaffected youth drama knows no international boundaries, few have felt as fresh and consistently unpredictable as the slyly satirical "Prince" by Dutch filmmaker Sam de Jong. Aug 13, 2015 Full Review Jorge Ayala Blanco El Universal A confined film that combines sociological cut, family chronicle, urban thriller, romantic drama, fairy tale and the fable. [Full review in Spanish] Feb 23, 2017 Full Review Oswaldo Betancourt Lozano Chilango.com An interesting mix of humor, drama and romance. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Jun 16, 2016 Full Review Luis Fernando Galván En Filme A light film, fun and sweet about appearances and teenage love.

      Audience Member An hour of my life that I can't get back. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Sam de Jong's film tells the story of a Dutch-Moroccan teen trying to find his way to some level of power in a life that seems to be veering so far out of his control he is slipping into despair. He strikes some gold thanks to a solid cast, most especially Ayoub Elasri in the title role. The film is overly-stylized and not in a good way. Pretty to look at, but it gets in the way of the a story that seems to be set in the reality of lower-class Amsterdam. The film deals with poor parenting, drug addiction, bullying, peer pressure and the criminal underground. The entire film is presented in shiny color as if any minute it is going to morph into a mix of "Napoleon Dynamite" merged with "United Colors of Benetton" -- all with 80's synth music. In fact, the tidy ending seems like a clip from some Euro-Fashion Advert. Despite some strong performances and several powerful scenes, the film offers some entertainment but is ultimately limp. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member The film is actually a lot less uptight, perhaps even a bit of comedy noir, than its trailer shows. Though, still not a really nice piece. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member This indie film had some hilarious moments. Also I love to watch a film that is different from the standard american film. This film is light hearted and dark at the same time def worth watching. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
