Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
This soccer comedy was 1997's highest grossing Dutch film in its homeland, selling more than 300,000 tickets. Businessman Bram (former child star Danny de Munck) flies back from Taiwan and goes directly from the airport to his regular Sunday soccer stint with his pals -- Johnny, son of their former coach; gardener Willem, married to a black woman; rude Mark, cheating on his girlfriend Rose; and Hero, a young man attracted to his stepmother. With feuds and friendships, the gang splinters and regroups as they head toward their 500th game. Shown at the 1997 Nederlands Film Festival/Holland Film Meeting.
