Beppie

Beppie is a poignant and endearing portrait of Beppie, the girl living next door to Johan van der Keuken in Amsterdam. We see Beppie playing in the street, in her class at school, eating fries at the Albert Cuypmarkt, at the entry of St Nicholas and at a Christmas celebration at the Salvation Army. Mean­ while Beppie gives her views on love, life and death. Beppie represents the life and day­to­day worries of an average Amsterdam girl whose parents are not very well off. At the same time, Beppie is an endearing, happy little girl who does not allow herself to be intimidated by a troubled life. Johan van der Keuken succeeds in capturing this on film very convincingly by means of a loose, observa­tional method of filming.
