It's summer, and 4 girls and 4 boys in their late teens - Thomas (Aimé Claeys), Simon (Tijmen Govaerts), Liesl (Pauline Casteleyn), Ruth (Maxime Jacobs), Jens (Friso van der Werf), Karl (Folkert Verdoorn), Ena (Laura Dosopoulos) and Femke (Salomén van Grunsven) -, are left with too much time on their own and too little to do, so hanging out together they start to do all sorts of crazy stuff, which of course includes alcohol, sex and drugs. After a while they figure they can make some money shooting porn for the internet, and as that goes really well, and they girls seem to enjoy promiscuity, the guys soon figure they might as well make them prostitutes and then by the by blackmail their clients. Again, that goes well for a while, but then Femke dies a tragic death (the nature of which is only revealed late in the movie), and that drives a rift into the group, and some pull out - but not Thomas, their sort-of leader, who even recruits two new girls (Lieselot Siddiki, Gaia Sofia Cozijn) as replacement for Femke. But of course, this way he only accelerates the story's trajectory towards tragedy ...

 

Now I have to admit, the premise of the plot sounds like something straight out of a German Schoolgirl Report movie from the 1970s (and indeed, schoolboys turning their willing classmates into prostitutes was the plot one of the segments of Schoolgirl Report Part 4: What Drives Parents to Despair), but this film is anything but, as it really dives into its characters, tries to portray their lives in a realistic way, and (despite some flirts with hardcore porn) really uses nudity only when narratively necessary, instead concentrates on the story. But probably the most fascinating thing about this film is how it tells its story, as it doesn't do in a strictly linear way but tells the same basic plot en suite from 4 different perspectives, which each respective narration only telling part of the tale, and much becomes clear only with the last go, Thomas's, the most ruthless of the gang, but also the one who (as it turns out) has the most urgent agenda and who's responsible for the film's surprise twist.

Well worth a look for sure!
