DIRECTOR:
Paula van der Oest
An actress is popular with Amsterdam's cultural elite – but will it last? A Dutch feel-good film

Renowned theatre actress Anne (Anneke Blok) is not getting any younger – unlike her ex-husband's girlfriends. Meanwhile her profligate retail therapy is endangering the security of her home – and her daughter's sanity. Enter stage left officious auditor Jacob, and the scene is set for a clash between art's passionate abandon and the dull missionary position of economic responsibility. A comedic scherzo for the young at (he)art.
