A Dutch film, post-Saturday Night Fever, which follows the lives of three young men who are amateur dirt-bike motorcycle racers. They each fall in love with a young woman who, with her brother, sells French fries and hot dogs at the races. Everyone is looking for a better life. She wants out of the business and away from her brother. The motocross racers want to make their marks as professional racers, like their hero, played by Rutger Hauer. Written by

The suits worn by the three protagonists during motocross racing reflect their nature: Rien, the most talented and valiant of the three, is dressed in white; Eef, the ambivalent one, is two-colored (red and black); and Hans, the fool and coward, wears yellow. See more »
After the rape scene in the metro, Jaap (brother of Fientje) gives Eef his shoe back, holding it at the heel side. But when the scene changes to a different angle he is holding the shoe at the nose side. See more »
b-film.nl From b to a > UPDATE: Splashes uncut is super. Real dick, real story. Splashes on to 2 (which may be some of Johan Nijenhuis).
Brute commerce and an exploitation film without morality are cries that belong in the world of b-movie. B-movies (on this site, we use the broadest definition ..) are made to throb, to shock and make money. In principle, not to lecture you. You have to love it. Paul Verhoeven, the Dutch star director after successes as Turkish Delight and Soldier of Orange. The cinemas were full and although reviewers always been critical opinions were never in the release of acid splashes.
The film was dismissed as b-movie that the columns in the quality press hardly worth it. Or Verhoeven and writer Gerard Soeteman really outraged - so they played it - we can ask them next Tuesday. Then she attended the presentation of the polished and extra scenes provided version of splashes. The negative buzz made time for a lot of curiosity and at hatching were again filled the halls.
Whether that will happen with this reissue, remains to be seen. The 'commercial' and 'exploitation' are thirty years later and no less violent critic of the content will now worry. What is remarkable is that this new version is preserved by the prestigious Eye. Keepers of the Quality Film. What the film is still stripped of the title B-movie. There the authors undoubtedly chuckle about, and experts have splashes designated as a movie. For the lover there to "b-level 'is still much to enjoy. The title will remain welcome on this site.
