“Simon” says…great film

Share this post:

Caught “Simon,” this powerful, provocative Dutch film on our favorite ARTE channel today. Featuring noone I knew, and with a delightfully well-written dialogue, this 2004 film by Eddy Terstall dares to treat the final days of a reprobate drug dealer who gets diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor and chooses euthanasia.

Between the relationship with his close circle of friends and family, the realism of the disease (including the final injection) and the complex emotions of the victim and his friends, this film allows you to laugh and cry with ease. The film is a tribute to Dutch candour and open-mindedness (euthanasia, multi-culturality & homosexuality).

A tough topic, but a fulfilling experience. See other blog on the film.
