Movie synopsis: Famous Dutch director Alex van Warmerdam combined his fondness of black humor, dysfunctional family relationships and the criticism of the power of money into a distinctive cocktail with a curare flavor. Homeless Borgman wraps a wealthy family around his finger and eventually subjugates them. This self-appointed chosen one begins to manipulate the inhabitants of the luxurious mansion and change their behavior in a dictatorial way. The genre, flirting with thriller, comedy and mystery, reveals certain obscenities of the upper-class lifestyle through the even more monstrous methods of a cruel vagrant and his mysterious assistants. Above all, it is a piece of art widely open for the viewer's interpretation.
