Valentino reaches Golden Status

March 29, 2013

Romantic comedy Valentino has reached the status of Golden Film for more than 100.000 tickets sold since its theatrical release in the Netherlands on March 21. The movie is screening in 99 theatres nationwide.

The film is directed by Remy van Heugten, written by Marco van Geffen, Remy van Heugten and Don Duyns  and produced by Lemming Film in co-production with Launch Works.

In Valentino a succesful Italian Masserati salesman, played by the popular Dutch/Moroccan comedian Najib Amhali,  is engaged to his boss's daughter, and about to be promoted. But Valentino has a problem; he's not Italian! When his father suffers a heart attack, he makes an emotional appeal to his son. Valentino agrees, but his promotion is subsequently put in jeopardy. And to make matters worse, Monique starts to doubt him. To keep the love of his life, Valentino must drop the Italian facade...

The Golden/Platinum/Diamond Film Award is an initiative presented by the Netherlands Film Festival and the Netherlands Film Fund since 2001. The prize is intended to encourage the Dutch film industry and motivate the general public to go and see Dutch films. The total number of tickets sold after a film’s release determines whether a prize is awarded.
