Cowboys janken ook 2013
25min | Short, Drama, Family | 6 July 2013 (UK)
When Sven provokes a fight after an evening out in Amsterdam his best friend ends up in a coma, and nothing is the same as before.
“Cowboys janken ook” or “Even Cowboys Get to Cry” is a Dutch 20-minute movie written by Merinde Verbeek and directed by Mees Peijnenburg. The language here is Dutch (so get subtitles perhaps) and the cast is too and I cannot say I am familiar with any of the names included there. About the story, there is not too much to say. It is about a friendship between two guys, nothing gay-themed here, and it gets put to the test when a serious injury happens to one. or maybe not serious as this film tries a lot in terms of drama and tragedy, but it becomes really unauthentic quickly and even fake. The dialogs are sometimes really embarrassing. I do not recommend watching this one. 4 out of 10 is still fairly generous and I hope everybody working in here can step up their games in the future and actually come up with better quality than here.
