The sweetest film of the Festival, and not a calorie in sight.

Renowned theatre actor Anne (a sensuous Anneke Blok) is not getting any younger – though her exhusband’s girlfriends are. Meanwhile her profligate retail therapy is endangering the security of her home – and her daughter’s sanity. Enter stage left officious auditor Jacob, and the scene is set for a clash between the passionate abandon of art and the dull missionary position of economic responsibility. A comedic scherzo for the young at (he)art.
