There’s a new movie coming up about a rogue trader, not surprising after all those Adoboli’s and Kerviel’s last years. Even better, it’s a Dutch movie, not surprising with all the Dutch trading firms ruling the global markets (ok, just kidding). Had the opportunity to have a coffee with the guys behind “Onbeperkt” (“Unlimited”).
Their knowledge about financial markets is pretty limited, but director Tom van Blommestein has been interviewing a dozen traders in the last couple of weeks to get a clear picture. After all it won’t be a movie about trading, but about a (former..) trader. Matthijs van de Sande Bakhuyzen will play the lead role and scenario by Philip Rolig. Shooting will start in a few weeks.
It’s a graduation project by the Nederlandse Filmacademie. Will be broadcasted on national television and shown on film festivals around the world. The guys still need some financing for their film, and started a crowdsourcing item on Cinecrowd. Somehow they only need a tiny
300k 3k – of which only 1k is still left. With all you billionaire traders reading this, consider donating a few bucks.
One day there will be subtitles. But not yet.
