Lowly Detective Ronald Plasmeyer Is Moving On To PLAN C
There's something brewing in the Netherlands. Perhaps emboldened by the recent success of titles like Sint and New Kids Turbo the Dutch film industry is embracing genre oriented fare in a way they haven't in recent memory. There's the second New Kids film coming soon, of course, and Sint director Dick Maas will return to screens with Quiz while director Peter Kuijpers will soon turn in ultra dark drama Manslaughter. And now here comes writer-director Max Porcelijn with Plan C.
There looks to be a trace of Soderbergh and the Coen Brothers in the teaser for Porcelijn's film, a brief taste of one that looks to blend character, action and pitch black comedy. Take a look below.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.
