Trivia

Disagreement over the script was not the only issue causing trouble during production. Director of photography Jan de Bont and actress Monique van de Ven had become a couple since meeting on the set of Turkish Delight (1973). De Bont was very uncomfortable with his wife's nude shots, which caused a tense atmosphere on the set. At one point, a local prostitute was hired to stand-in for van de Ven during a nude scene. Also, director Paul Verhoeven's wife Martine, a psychologist, was brought on the set to ease some of the tensions. See more »

Appropriate for the History Channel not late night cable

This movie details the struggle of young Dutch women,Keetje Tippel (Monique Van De Ven) from the countryside who moves with her family to Amsterdam in search of a better life only to find themselves living among filth, vermin and squalor in a slum. She finds work in various jobs where conditions are horrible and she is subjected to constant sexual harassment and eventually rape.

Finally she becomes a prostitute which ends up being her gateway to the good life as she becomes mistress to the banker, Hugo (Rutger Hauer) and later the respected wife of Hugo's wealthy friend.

This is an expose of the Dutch class-system in the 19th century and has socialist and feminist overtones. It ranks among the best of 1970's Dutch cinema and is easily the highlight of Monique Van De Ven's career.

Warning! Although there is some nudity and sexuality it is not done in celebration of sensuality but rather explores the dark side of exploitation of sex. This is a very serious film and not for those looking for light entertainment.
