How an enthusiastic, ambitious politician in cynical coalition play is sacrificed by the antique dinosaurs of the political elite
27 February 2018 | by dourfaceSee all my reviews

Madam Minister (Mevrouw de minister) tells the fictional story of municipal councilor Dirkje Holman appointed to Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment. Unlike her colleagues, Dirkje wants to tackle things differently. She is innovative and quirky. Scenario-technical not brilliant, but with dynamic camera work, compelling music, and interesting tricks in the field of framing and camera making, which gives the series - entirely in black and white - the necessary grandeur and allure.
