Thys & Trix

Thys & Trix
Thys and Trix are brother and sister, and also diligent but unhelpful police officers. Thys is thoughtful but confused, while his sister is a raucous sexpot. After an unfortunate incident, they are suspended from the force. Luckily a detective is busy trying to crack a crime syndicate, and needs a couple to go undercover. The brother and sister team is the best available. They finally get to join the detective branch, but will they be able to hold it together long enough for the investigation to succeed? In Afrikaans language with English subtitles.

What the Critics say

Die Burger
Hershelle Benjamin quote iconBosch-egpaar mik na pure aksiekomedie.
Staff writer quote iconThys & Trix is a really good laugh for the younger Afrikaans generation, but might seem a little out there for the older audience that doesn’t like to mix their taal. Although it has an element of slapstick, it also proves that Afrikaners can have comedy without resorting to Leon Schuster-esque shenanigans that have lost its appeal in this decade.
