Last year in the theatre we were doing "Othello". The moment I walked on stage the audience began to applaud and cheer. And I hadn't even opened my mouth. Clearly the audience couldn't possibly be applauding my performance as Othello as I couldn't begin playing him because of all the noise. So they're applauding me as a famous person. Valentin was getting all the applause while this poor chap Othello was standing there, hoping they would shut up.

I saw this movie a couple of years ago but I can still remember it well and the movie (and its story) allways facinated me. I have only now discovered that this movie was in fact a Dutch production (from my own country), but because of all the foreign actors I allways thought that the movie was American.
Maybe the reason why the story appealed to me so much was perhaps that the theory of heaven based on popularity could be very realistic and would make very much sense to me. Ofcorse in the movie it is based on allready believed in theories (like the Styx).
I find it almost impossible to believe that the movie is not available as DVD (well maybe in Dutch stores but at least not at Amazon), because the movie was not that bad that it should die a quiet death on slowly detoriating VHS tapes...
