0 Comments on this event

One of the most talked about narrative features at this year’s New Orleans Film Festival is a Dutch black comedy called Plan C, about a down-on-his-luck Amsterdam detective Ronald (Ruben Van Der Meer).  From the sad sack lead character to bursts of incompetence of the criminals, this film seems to have all the ingredients for success. It is also the first Dutch film to be chosen for the festival in many years.

Plan C will be screened October 13 at 2:45 p.m. at the Prytania Film Theatre, the oldest operating theatre in New Orleans. Dutch Producer Sander Verdonk and Dutch Director Max Porcelijn will attend the screening. 

Synopsis

Ronald Plasmeyer (Ruben Van Der Meer) is a small-time Amsterdam detective, struggling with financial problems because of his gambling habit. When the Chinese crime boss Hao threatens Ronald's ex-wife and son to get his money back, Ronald comes up with a plan that will solve all his problems. Ronald enlists two petty criminals (Ton Kas and René Van 't Hof) to rob an illegal poker tournament he's taking part in, providing him with a perfect alibi. Quick, simple and non-violent; the plan is foolproof... until people start getting killed. Soon, Ronald's partners take off with the money, leaving him empty handed. To make matters worse Ronald's colleagues in the police force begin to suspect him of the robbery, setting the stage for a nerve-racking game of cat and mouse. Ronald is all-in ... holding the worst hand of his life.
