Adios Amigos is a 2016 Dutch drama film directed by Albert Jan van Rees. It is a remake of the 2011 Belgian film Come as You Are.

In the opening sequence, we see the swimming pool where the girls swim on the one side and the three friends on the other side. The colours are bright. The blue water. Black tiles define the laps. Red floats and yellow rubber-swimming pillows. DOP Dennis Wielaert's shots are graphical; which create grids. We used the grids to put the typography in place.

Together with director Albert Jan van Rees, we looked for a font that had a pronounced character, both elicited and anarchistic. The main title is placed on a top shot of the pool, full frame in big yellow letters.
