Ah, but the English speaking people often confuse Dutch and German in movies and series.<br />If an actor plays somebody from Holland e.g. they speak German in stead of Dutch. <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

It was on a Dutch movie last night (yeah, the token one Dutch movie a month was on! lol). Although I don't think much of their translation... in the Englishs subtexts they translated it to "idiot"... hmmm I don't think so! <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

btw, do you guys know they movie (in English it's called "Bastards and Bridesmaids"???) I think it's set in Amsterdam? I was trying to figure it out... but one guy lived at Nassaukade... that's in Amsterdam right? lol (hmm why the hell am I asking you, you're all from Belgiu anyway!) <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> .

Yeah, it probably is a typical Dutch film. I missed the title in Dutch! lol It went too fast! All the Belgian films they show here (oh yes, and they show sooooooooo many - sarcasm - are French-Belgian, not Vlaams!) <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Hey, we get hardly any foreign movies on tv here anyway... which really sucks! And when we do get foreign movies they are usually Asian, or French or Russian... like ARG! hehe

I want Dutch speaking movies!!! So not fair!!!

umm it was about some guy who never had sex, and he fell in love with his best friend (female), who already had a boyf, and didn;t wanna sleep with the guy... the guy's name was Dmitri... damned if I can remember his best friend's name though! lol And then Dmitri was getting advice on how to make his best friend fall in love with him freom some other guy who was a real chauvinist! lol And this guys' girlfriend "Floor" kept getting mad at him because of the advice he was giving Dmitri... ahh haha that's a bad explanation...

As you know, I don't know the title either ;)

Did they also show "Turks Fruit" (since you say all Dutch movies are about sex, and most I know aren't ;))? I just read the book (I had to, for school), and I hated it!

Hello Dudes,

ok it is a long time ago, that this thread has been current but nevertheless I want to answer.

I think Gunther calls Ross an "Esel". Esel is the German word for donkey. In German colloquial language Esel is often used as a term of reproach.

I think the best way to translate Esel in this relation is fool.

I hope that I disabused your problem and that you understand my jackass english.

take care,
german currychicken

first off all. What's the point of bumping this , nobody cares!
Just as other people said; Aisel! isn't a dutch word ;)
if the thread starter said: Ezel then we knew it!

and Dutchiegirl isn't Dutch. She is from Australia
