Het schnitzelparadijs Feature film, 2005, 83 min.

Multicultural high-speed comedy about a squabbling Moroccan duo in a hotel kitchen where Nordip (Mounir Valentyn) ends up after his graduation with distinction. The kitchen is a chaotic mini-world that the camera whizzes through, with some very strange staff members, from a Yugoslav meat cutter (Tygo Gernandt) to a hawking hard rocker as the chef (Frank Lammers). But also with the gorgeous blonde waitress Agnes (Bracha van Doesburgh), daughter of the owner (Linda van Dijck). She and Nordip gradually become a multicultural Romeo and Juliet - but first they will have to defy their families. Agnes would do better than bring a Moroccan to the parental house, and Nordip struggles with his proud father's high expectations. But he does not feel at home with the Moroccans in the kitchen, either - they with their mopeds, Nordip with his bicycle. After Khalid Boudou's book.
