Critic Reviews for Ouwehoeren (Meet the Fokkens)

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (1)

  • A prostitute's sexual freedom is a fiction; though this isn't news, the film confronts the issue with rawness and panache.

    April 12, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Even if this film were not cordially made, which it is, it would have a considerable jump-start.

    June 18, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Despite the occasional stumble, the doc never falls, thanks to the sheer strength of its subjects' undaunted and indomitable character.

    December 14, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The doc gives a rare look at the business of plying the world's oldest profession over the past 50 years in the famously tolerant city, but the directors are a bit too hands-off and the narrative wanders.

    December 13, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Year by year, they've shared every part of their lives, and now the Fokkens sashay into the future, sharing memories and viewpoints as well as their neon-bright identical outfits.

    August 10, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The filmmakers follow the sisters around town, creating a delightful portrait of good-natured extroverts.

    August 9, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
