Ja zuster, nee zuster

Feature film, 2002, 102 min.

The film is a cheerful stylized musical comedy a la 8 femmes. The story happens in the guest-house of sister Klivia in one of the Dutch towns.

Light-hearted musical is an adaptation of the successful TV series of the same name, written by Annie M.G. Schmidt along with composer Harry Bannink in 1965. The story is set in a neat little street against the backdrop of the sixties. Loes Luca is nurse Klivia, holding sway in a nursing home over the nervous Jet, `the engineer' and the quarrelling Bertus and Bobby. The noisy company is a thorn in the flesh of the sulky neighbour Boordevol (Paul Kooij). He tries everything to have Klivia and her rowdies evicted for the umpteenth time, but to no avail.
