Ivan is a gawky junior stock broker on his way to work at an Amsterdam company. Wide-eyed and enthusiastic, he jogs along with all the other worker bees streaming into soulless skyscrapers of glass and steel. He's a jittery fellow, always tapping his keyboard or flipping his pen as he watches stocks rise and fall on his computer screen. Ivan's playfulness and tactile feeling for numbers give him a sixth sense for when to buy and sell. He leaves post-it notes with winning stock tips in conspicuous places around the office, until the higher-ups figure out who the genius trader is. Ivan is then hastily promoted and given an ultra-luxury apartment with pool access. He's suddenly a Master of the Universe in a win-win situation. But the cutthroat pressure saps all the joy out of playing with numbers. He's appalled at the crass behavior of his fellow star traders. Ivan befriends a depressed young Korean colleague and a receptionist who recognizes the gentle man inside his agitated exterior. Soon he's wandering the streets at night, lost and unable to function. Can he possibly win himself back? WIN/WIN is a stylish film with an appealing lead performance. (In Dutch with subtitles) –B.B.
