De Loods 2015
14min | Short, Thriller | 5 December 2015 (Netherlands)
De Loods is a coming-of-age film, disguised as a thriller. Two men have an appointment in the abandoned warehouse where they used to play as kids. As they wait, they think back about their childhood…
This is a Dutch movie about two old childhood friends who meet up years later where they find themselves having to discuss and face up to their responsibilities of times gone by. From the outset there is a real sense of tension and intrigue that captures your attention as the tale starts to be told. As the memories of the past begin to emerge, the story of what happened years before become a reality that they now have to deal with. This is a primarily a story about growing up and how teens spent a day of their summer holidays and the implications that they now face. The content and story is not all sweetness and light and has an undercurrent of a very dark subject matter and may not be suitable for all. It’s very well created and as it flows between the present and past, is very easy to understand and follow.
