Wout Conijn creates a masterly, humorous and moving self-portrait.– Jan Pieter Ekker in the Volkskrant
Conijn uses a sense of perspective and well-chosen edits to make an irresistible film. My Turn is a flawless film-challenge to an older brother who always seems to know better. The scenes with the two brothers are almost scarily perfect and then one realises that Wout started collecting a long time ago.– Bas Blokker in NRC Handelsblad
…the documentary project by Wout Conijn is a breath of fresh air with its inventiveness and originality. An impressive debut.– Belinda van de Graaf, Trouw
A succesfull person documentation.– Job van der Burg, Parool
Wout Conijn has made a challenging and extraordinary selfportrait with clever editing that seeks to heighten the film’s claustrofobia.– Mariska Graveland, Filmkrant
With a fresh approach combining wit and irony, My Turn is an universal story.– André Waardenburg, Skrien
Wout is a competition cyclist, a mountain climber, and a student at the film academy; Joost is an artist with a substantial track record. This film tells the story of their difficult relationship, seen from the perspective of the younger brother, who is not afraid to dish up a good share of self-mockery. “My brother thinks that once in a lifetime, everyone should take apart an engine block,” we hear him say in the voiceover. Next, we see Wout grapple with a towel and a pile of engine parts, while his older brother irritably lectures him from a distance. When Wout scales the slopes of the Himalayas with his camera, he comes to the point of making an important decision about his life.
