Product Description

A suburban teenager is drawn into a hellish world of violence in this fascinating and tragic tale from first-time director Pieter Kuijpers. Living at home and neglected by his wealthy stepfather, seven-teen-year-old Stan has no interest in school and is bored by his dull surroundings. His chance for adventure comes in the form of Maikel, a devil-eyed, long-haired, hot-tempered criminal. Accompanied by Maikel's beautiful lover Anna, they embark on a series of increasingly dangerous and brutal crimes. Stan and Maikel begin to emotionally spiral out of control as they lose their grip on reality. Based on the true story of a group of young killers who shook Holland in the mid-'90s, Godforsaken is a furious, heart-stopping, unforgettable ride.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well done downer of a movie June 4, 2013
Format:DVD
Note in Dutch with sub-titles. Stan lives with his Mother and the dentist she married after his biological father abandons her. Stan finds his trucker father who avoids seeing him the second time until Stan reads of his death in a multi-vehicle pile-up on the highway. He finds companionship with Michael, a small-time crook and his lieutenant Sef. Together their crimes become more violent and pointless. Throw in a gal, Anna, who offers herself to Stan but is attached to Michael and you get the picture.

Stan is a handsome looking intelligent lad with great possibilities but lacking the parental support to see them through. Having fallen into bad company his life spirals downward into hopelessness and despair. No good can come of this. The movie is shot in sepia tones with scenes in a Catholic Church and a background score heavy on chant. This is not a feel-good movie, there is no redemption here.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Dutch Masters April 11, 2008
Format:DVD
Godforsaken: deserted by God, outside the Love of God, refused and reviled by God, Pieter Kuipjer's film is bursting with Life, with Death, Murder, Mayhem and Kuijper's characters live in the world but are not really a part of it.
Mike (mascara'd, scary, violent, a murderer, a brazen, stupid thief portrayed by Tygo Gernhardt) thinks that he is a wise guy but he is merely playing a part: a part ascribed to him by his meager circumstances. He's a petty, not particularly bright crook who kills for money, is on the 3rd or 4th level of Crookdom who one day comes in contact with wide-eyed, handsome young sensitive guy, Stan (Egbert-Jan Weeber) who is ripe for the picking by anyone who is willing to give him some attention and love. Stan is without direction, without a code of ethics: waiting for someone to fill in the blanks. Unfortunately, Mike steps up and embraces Stan as both a brother and a partner in crime.
"Godforsaken" is all about outsiders, whose horrible private lives give them the impetus to act out: kill, maim, and steal. But all that Mike and Stan involve themselves with or more to the point get involved in is low class: trailer park-level mayhem. Director Kuijper's mise-en-scene is filled with the detritus of their pathetic lives: divorced or absent parents, lives without the basics: honor, respect and a reverence for Life.
"Godforsaken" is physically beautiful as well as morally ambiguous. It is like a handsome man or beautiful woman who, anointed by society with special powers and entitlements, are without the moral compass to do the right thing so they do anything they wish seemingly without a conscience to guide them.

5.0 out of 5 stars sex,blood,murdering October 31, 2007
Format:DVD
A good boy, a son of dentist, befriended a bad boy with all sex/crime-related consequences just to kill his friend and be killed imminently by their crime-follower.

It is a dynamic, sexy, terribly cynic work of modern Holland.
