The cinematic city opposed to the real city

Living in Amsterdam sometimes makes you forget how beautiful the city actually is. Dozens of canals become normal, Medieval architecture seems just an other part of everyday life, the Anne Frank House is nothing more than a bus stop, etc. But of course,  it isn’t normal at all!

I would like to use this blog to show the beauty of Amsterdam and combine that beauty with another passion of mine: Film. How has Amsterdam been portrayed in film and documentary and do the representations do any justice to the real Amsterdam? In other words, does the cinematic city add up to the actual city? With the use of reports, photo’s, clips and reviews I’m gonna try to investigate whether or not both versions of the city are alike.

Can’t wait!
