Lively, rich in witty characters, [and] well acted … Nijenhuis is the Netherlands’s most reliable supplier of romantic films.”

Pauline Kleijer, de Volkskrant

Young and ambitious Amsterdam lawyer Yasmine, of Dutch-Moroccan heritage, is struggling to navigate her job, her life, and her multiple cultural identities. Brilliant and successful, she is rapidly climbing the career ladder at a prestigious law firm, but her rather conservative family appears only interested in one thing: when is she getting married? Craving the approval of both her parents and the local Moroccan community, Yasmine resolves to try to tie the knot as soon as possible. But how can you find your one true love? At once a sprightly romantic comedy and an astute comment on the many challenges faced by children of first-generation immigrants, Yasmine’s Wedding is a winning combination of humour, romance, and social observation, featuring a breakout performance by the luminous Soumaya Ahouaoui.
