    • Synopsis
    • KICKS is a gritty, serious as well as hilarious kaleidoscopic look at present-day Holland; while at times harsh and confrontational, the film also takes a witty look at the emotion-soaked dilemmas, fears, expectations and misunderstandings in a multicultural society. The actors of Moroccan descent from the successful film Hush Hush Baby are now joined by a host of native Dutch actors.
      Various characters, funny or serious, circle round two young Moroccan Dutchmen. All represent some layer of Dutch society: a beautiful upper class girl sets out to meet a ‘real’ immigrant, a filmmaker tries to make a film about the fate of asylum seekers and fails spectacularly, a Moroccan-Dutch army sergeant goes in search of true love and a young homeless shelter assistant seeks happiness outside the familiar ground of her family and her workplace.
