Director: Johan Nijenhuis
Romantic comedy, set in the sultry Spanish seaside resort Salou, where Angela and two friends immerse themselves for a week in the town's buoyant nightlife. Her odd sister Janet, who wears a brace, was forced to come along. In the daytime, the girls are baking in the sun, at night they join the boys and girls who are parading down the street and try to make someone in a club. So-called proppers (club promoters), boys and girls with beautiful bodies and smooth words, try to lure the partygoers into their disco. Like the popular Rens and Frida, who also give dance shows for the trendy Costa club. Rens has another sweetheart every night, but when he meets Janet he is flustered. The more so when it turns out that Janet can dance like a goddess, which is convenient for the dance contest that is organised by MTV. The jealous Frida throws a spanner in the works. Costa! is the feature film début of director Johan Nijenhuis. The film was awarded as Golden and Platina Film.
