With the onslaught of Warner Bros The Matrix Revolutions helping Dutch box office to a 52% rise week-on-week it was local drama Cloaca that held up best.

Dropping just 7% in its third week and boasting the second highest screen average of the week, after Revolutions, with $4,175 Cloaca gained one position rising to sixth place.

Directed by Willem van de Sande Bakhuyzen, the film tells the story of four middle-aged old collage friends who reunite in a time of trouble. It stars Peter Blok, Pierre Bokma, Gijs Scholten van Aschat and Jaap Spijkers.

The only new opener besides the third Matrix instalment was Paradiso Entertainment's Kurt Russell thriller Dark Blue. The film, directed by Ron Shelton, opened at just nine screens for a $2,136 average - the fourth best in the chart belying its 14th placing in the top 20.
