A washed up Flemish criminal gets assigned the job of babysitting a feisty, young Hungarian beauty in a remote cottage somewhere in the French Ardennes. They don’t know each other’s backgrounds and they’re not supposed to ask questions. But young girls get bored and bored girls act out.
‘To Catch A Fly’ is a dark Dutch comedy about an aging criminal forced to face the lack of impact he has made in the world while watching over a pretty young girl during a hot summer assignment. All he really wants to do is follow simple orders; make sure she stays at the house, keep a low profile and don’t ask questions. The girl has other plans however and she’s not about to let him boss her around.
