Storyline

Marcel Hamelinck has a chronic muscle disease and therefore has to retire from his work. After his wife Denise dies, his attention is drawn to his daughter-in-law Simone. Obsessively he tries to make overtures, even at the expense of his own health. He gives her expensive presents and builds a pool to see her swim. After Simone allows him to touch her, Hamelinck only has one wish: to become her slave. Simone cleverly exploits the situation, while Marcel's condition slowly worsens. Written by Arnoud Tiele (zelva@tiele.nl)

For everyone who's ever harbored a secret sexual wish.
1 December 2007 | by (Parry Sound/ Ontario) – See all my reviews

Wealthy Mr.H seems to have lost everything: His health, his youth, his wife and even control over his own fortune. But he has kept something far more important : His desire for beautiful women. And that life-affirming passion, fueled by the tempting nearness of his sultry daughter -in-law, lets him escape from his sickbed into the rich world of submissive fantasies and remembrance. Beatie Edney plays quite an enchanting, but very natural Dominatrix. Look inside the "DIARY OF A MAD OLD MAN" and you'll find humor and tragedy, wisdom and sensuality . Unformulated, the movie delivers surprise by surprise at a very slow pace, as to make the viewer feel "his age". Coming closer to our hero's age, I didn't mind this pace at all, I found some rather delicious and inspiring moments in it.
