Cowboys janken ook 2013
Sven (18) and Gijs (18) are best friends. When the two boys find themselves in a fight after an evening out, Gijs ends up in a coma. Sven wrestles with guilt and the fear that he will lose his best friend for ever. When Gijs recovers from his coma, nothing is the same as before. ‘Even Cowboys Get To Cry’ (Cowboys Janken Ook) is a film about friendship, guilt and violence.
“Cowboys janken ook” or “Even Cowboys Get to Cry” is a Dutch 20-minute movie written by Merinde Verbeek and directed by Mees Peijnenburg. The language here is Dutch (so get subtitles perhaps) and the cast is too and I cannot say I am familiar with any of the names included there. About the story, there is not too much to say. It is about a friendship between two guys, nothing gay-themed here, and it gets put to the test when a serious injury happens to one. or maybe not serious as this film tries a lot in terms of drama and tragedy, but it becomes really unauthentic quickly and even fake. The dialogs are sometimes really embarrassing. I do not recommend watching this one. 4 out of 10 is still fairly generous and I hope everybody working in here can step up their games in the future and actually come up with better quality than here.
