MINI MINI should be the focus of story
27 September 2020 | by selvadorada300See all my reviews

In my opinion, Mini mini story is more interesting than to her mistress, which is selfish, promiscuous, ruthless and miserable. I mean who wants to watch a toxic character making herself and the people around her miserable? At least mini mini has a decency and more ladylike than sarith. I agree on one review here, the antics and story were tiresome it would be better if its formatted as mini series. Also Dutch cinema has a different style of story telling, very different from what we saw in Hollywood which is effective and fresh for someone who is not familiar in Dutch movies.
