Sweet Dreams - Terrasbios

From classics to summer highlights from the past season. Watch them in our intimate outdoor cinema on the water: the Terrace Cinema. A bittersweet colonial family drama starring Renée Soutendijk, Hans Dagelet and Peter Faber. In this ruthless satire, the death of a Dutch sugar manufacturer leads to an exuberant game of cat and mouse while an Indonesian workers' uprising brews. On a remote Indonesian island, during the waning days of the colonial era, Dutch sugar manufacturer Jan suddenly falls dead in front of his wife Agathe. Their estranged son Cornelis and his heavily pregnant wife Josefien arrive from the Netherlands to take over the family business. To everyone's dismay, Jan's concubine Siti turns out to play a key role in his will. In the midst of an uprising by Indonesian workers, a cat-and-mouse game begins from which no one will emerge unscathed. Sweet Dreams by Ena Sendijarevic (Take Me Somewhere Nice) combines ruthless satire and an exuberant aesthetic in a story about the demise of European colonialism. In addition to the six Golden Calves, Renée Soutendijk received the award for Best Actress at the Locarno Film Festival.
