As I travel, I like to read fiction books that take place in the place I travel to. So when I mentioned this to a Dutch friend, and asked for recommendations, he recommended the movie Amsterdamned instead!

This 80s Dutch movie (with Dutch actors and everything!) is about a serial killer who moves through Amsterdam's canals and a cop who tries to catch him. One of the most fascinating parts of the movie is actually "The Making Of" section after the movie. 

It was all completely filmed in either Amsterdam or Utrecht! It ain't no Hollywood where they can just make it snow or rain on demand or just have a realistic New York street in LA. Everything was filmed in these two cities!

They even had to convert a regular street into the Red Light District, since actually shooting in the Red Light District is not allowed. 

I cannot recommend Amsterdamned enough! Here is the trailer:
