Storyline

After his wife Marjan has died in a car crash, Philip de Wit becomes a total wreck. Only after months does he return to a more or less normal life and even then he only works in his wife's bookstore. A year later Eileen walks in the store, a girl from Northern Ireland with her baby in her arms. When Philip sees her, he's dumbfounded, for she's the spitting image of his dead wife. Obsessed with her, he goes and tries to find her again, but he soon finds out that he's not the only one who's looking for Eileen. Written by Leon Wolters <wolters@strw.LeidenUniv.nl>

True emotions for sensitive people
12 October 1999 | by (Amsterdam, Holland) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a long time ago (about 10 years) so I do not remember a lot, except for the true emotions in the movie, that may not be acknowledged by a modern audience. Philip de Wit loses his girl friend in a car crash, then meets a girl that looks exactly like her. The rest of the story is about these two people. I don't want to spoil the story by telling too much but it's one of my little favourites.
