INTERNATIONAL CINEMA: HARDCORE NEVER DIES
We continue with our series of International Cinema – where we offer the best foreign movies with English subtitles.
Seventeen-year-old Michael dreams of a future as a pianist, but his parents don’t want to hear about it. When he applies for the conservatory, he is allowed to enter the second round by the skin of his teeth. In his search for inspiration, his brother Danny turns up unexpectedly and introduces him to the Rotterdam gabber scene. Michael gets sucked into a world of cutting-edge beats, brotherhood and drugs. But when Danny’s pill trade reaches international proportions, the brothers have to fight for their lives. Hardcore Never Dies is the new film from director Jim Taihuttu (De Oost, Wolf, Rabat), starring Joes Brauers, Jim Deddes and Rosa Stil.
