Description: An unlikely friendship is renewed under difficult circumstances in this comedy drama from the Netherlands. Simon (Cees Geel) is a loudmouthed but likable hash dealer who one day meets Camiel (Marcel Hensema), a soft-spoken aspiring dentist who nearly falls victim to Simon in an auto accident. Despite the circumstances of their meeting and the fact that straight Simon is a bit taken aback by Camiel's gay lifestyle, the two become good friends, but they have a falling out when Sharon (Rifka Lodeizen), Simon's girlfriend, decides to find out just how gay Camiel really is and ends up having sex with him. Simon and Camiel don't see one another for nearly 15 years until they have a chance meeting, and Camiel learns that his brash and burly friend has developed a serious brain tumor and has only a few months left to live. As Simon becomes a shadow of his former self, Camiel and their old circle of friends band together to offer him comfort in his final weeks. Written and directed by Eddy Terstall, Simon was the official Dutch entry for the Foreign Language Film Oscar at the 2005 Academy Awards.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
