Director Ena Sendijarevic constructs beautiful tableaus that elegantly balance between dark drama and peculiar absurdism. The cast is filled with cunning characters driven by egoism, opportunism, and revenge. The film conveys their more or less rational actions with a subtle touch of dark and whimsical humor.

This visually stunning film is a sharp-eyed and intelligent satire about the dark colonial history of the Netherlands.
