Hemel changes her sexual partners at an even quicker pace than her father Gijs changes his girlfriends. Since the death of the mother, the father and daughter have had an unusually close and intimate relationship which tolerates no real commitment in their respective affairs.

Our take

The sex escapades of a young woman reveal the nuances between sexual emancipation and vulnerability, while concealing her inner struggle with grief. A singular take on the father-daughter relationship, this Dutch drama (awarded a prize in Berlin) is refreshing in its daring tone yet touching warmth.
