      Audience Member I ve tried to watch entirely this poor film, with so poor story and so pathetic actors, but I had to stop after 45 minutes ... If someone can go further : congratulations ! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Probably still at the very top of my list of favorite films ever. Carice and Waldemar are absolutely wonderful, the story is amazing, every part of this film from top to bottom sticks with me, which is not something I can say about many movies! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Een van de betere Nederlandse films. Vooral Van Houten is goed. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Thinking to become a housewife? Make sure to have all your life issues first!! I thought this movie was going to be more dark, but it presents a story that can happen anytime to anyone. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Intruiging portrait of a woman who suffers from postpartum depression and lands in psychiatry. Carice van Houten makes again a 'tour de force' in performing some very contradicting emotions. Not a funny movie, but it will certainly generate some interesting discussions about the sense or nonsense of psycho therapy and how to deal with it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Postpartum depression + Feminine's accusation against men's uncaring + A repressed, concealed family's dark history. Decent only the PPD seems far-fetched & unsupportive enough bringing forth the story afterwards. Carice van Houten is wonderful as always although sounds habitually forceful sometimes.
