Wilde mossels

The lives of young Zeeland friends Leen, Jacob and Daan are marked by restlessness, a restlessness stemming from boredom, as nothing ever happens on Schouwen-Duivenland, unless you make it happen yourself. They try chasing away apathy with off-road motorcycling, their hard rock band and hanging out in Café 't Oekje near the church. Particularly Leen (Fedja van Huêt) is plagued by restlessness. Since meeting a stranded Irishman at the roadside, he dreams of starting a new life as a garage owner in Dublin. But no matter how much he wishes to explore the world, so much is also holding him back, for example his possessive mother. "Life will get better," someone laments.

This "potato western" was the feature debut of the Zeeland director Erik de Bruyn. His film is vaguely reminiscent of Rebel Without a Cause, but then transposed to Zeeland.
