Directors Steffen Haars & Flip Van der Kuil – 2017 Netherlands 83 min West Coast Premiere – Dark Comedy

 

An overnight YouTube sensation finds himself embarking on a career falling off balconies and smashing cars all in hopes of bedding Dutch superstar and supermodel Bo Maerten and prove to his wife he’s ‘still got it.’ A surprising morality tale with a pure heart and a cornucopia of crazy characters.

In RON GOOSSENS, LOW BUDGET STUNTMEN, an overnight youtube sensation finds himself embarking on a career falling off balconies and smashing cars for money. This would be enough of a set-up for a great movie, but Steffen Haars and Flip Van Der Kuil comedy finds Ron Goossens (Tim Haars) only at it to try to bed Dutch superstar and supermodel Bo Maerten, to prove to his wife he’s ‘still got it.’ His wife actually threatens to leave him if he can’t do it, after he discovers she has had sex with basically the entire town, including all his friends. Able to recover quickly from his many stunts due mainly to being completely drunk all the time, Goossens finds he has to quit drinking to make any headway with Maerten, and when he does finally achieve a clear headed perspective, he begins to wonder if his entire life has really amounted to anything (that he can actually remember). A surprising morality tale with a pure heart and a cornucopia of crazy characters, RON GOOSSENS, LOW BUDGET manages to actually charm in spite of the constant (and hilarious) intrusion of montage music courtesy of Dutch lounge-legend Dennie Christian which faux-charms at every instant.
