Geen paniek

Summary

A nonsensical comedy with star comedians Johnny Kraaykamp and Rijk de Gooyer in the lead. After many years of success on Dutch television, Geen paniek marked the film debut for the well-loved duo.

When Johnny comes out of prison after serving a five-year sentence, he finds his friend Rijk waiting for him. The latter is anxious to make use of Johnny's talent for finding simple solutions to knotty problems. Together they go into business as 'handymen' who undertake the oddest kinds of jobs.

They find accommodation at Johnny's aunt Toetje's who poses as a masseuse but in reality runs one of Amsterdam's most discrete brothels. Speculators are interested in the property because the site on which it stands would open up very lucrative prospects. This leads to a lot of fuss and bother and a stolen contract of sale, and also some hard knocks, several of which are dealt out by Eddie Constantine as a mysterious American businessman.
