JUST FRIENDS (Gewoon Vrienden)
This charming romantic comedy follows Yad, as he returns from a life of study and partying in Amsterdam to his hometown. To his mother’s dismay, he settles for a job working as care assistant to an elderly woman Ans, and that’s when he meets Joris.
Joris is Ans’s handsome grandson. The spark is instant. But with Yad’s parents nagging him about his career choices, and Joris’s mother struggling in the aftermath of her divorce, will true love have a chance to blossom?
“With the right mix of humour, romance, sexiness and pathos, this enchanting cross-cultural love story… is a witty, well-acted crowd-pleaser.” – San Francisco Chronicle
