Alex van Warmerdam’s award-winning second feature is set in a remote small Dutch village in the early 1960s. The village is actually just one street of a new town that was never completed, and the behavior of its inhabitants is invariably determined by their unsolved sexual problems, leading to a number of comic situations depicted in a tradition of absurdist black humor.
Director: Alex van Warmerdam. AKA The Northerners
Stars: Leonard Lucieer, Jack Wouterse, Rudolf Lucieer, Annet Malherbe, Chris Bolczek, Veerle Dobbelaere, Loes Wouterson, Alex van Warmerdam, Jacques Commandeur.
Another fine addition, Jon. Thanks!
More like this please, Jon!
Just superb! The first Van Warmerdam film I’ve see, but def not the last. This one was whimsical but also disturbing. A little research seems to bear out dark comedy as the director’s oeuvre. Thanks once again, Jon.
Quirky black humour at its best, Strangely rather enjoyable.
