A friendship is tested by what may have been a stunning act of betrayal in this coming of age drama from director Mark de Cloe. Willem (Ruben van Weelden), Jacques (Niels Gomperts) and Chris (Jim van der Weelden) are three close friends growing up in the rural Netherlands. The boys have known each other since they were little, but now that they're sixteen, new interests and rivalries have come into their lives. One day, Jacques is seriously injured in an accident as he's run over by a tractor being driven by Willem. Though Willem insists what happened was simply a terrible mistake, even he isn't sure if the incident might have something to do with Marianne (Lisa Smit), the pretty girl Jacques recently stole away from him. Shocking Blue was an official selection at the 2010 Rotterdam International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
