The first movie by Paul Verhoeven and Gerard Soeteman that was not produced by Rob Houwer. They left Houwer over the many artistic and financial arguments they had had over the years, and went to Joop van den Ende, who was pretty much the only other large producer in the Netherlands who could secure the necessary budget at the time.

He even leans on her car just a few feet away from his car while talking to her.

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.
