Godforsaken - Netherlands
Godforsaken (Van God Los, 2003)
Director: Pieter Kuijpers
Based on the case of Venlo Gang, Godforsaken is a Dutch drama on the slow descent into crime and the mafia. Stan is a bored middle class teenager with zero of ambition. When his friend Mike is released from prison, Stan jumped at the opportunity to spice up her life. The duo decides to rob a local drug dealer, but the plan goes wrong: a man is killed, and the two robbers leave empty handed. Intrigued by the young criminals, the local sponsor commits them to a series of jobs increasingly violent.
