Any fan of great film should see this wee gem
26 April 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Co-directed by and starring Rutger Hauer, this film short was based on a short story by Dutch writer Harry Murlisch.

In the 10 minutes of the film's length you will get to see a life-time as 'Harry' unravels his long-time fascination with a room he passes constantly in his youth. Returning to the city many years later he finds he has rented the same room.

Using black and white film the textures are accentuated in this delicate telling of a tale. The voice of 'Harry' drawing you into his world.

A subtle, tight performance from Rutger Hauer and 2 non-speaking characters. Wonderful soundtrack by Dutch musician Dyzack.

At the moment difficult to see this movie as it is only available on DVD region 2 "L'infidele" (Liv Ullman) as a bonus track. But is due to be on the re-released DVD of "The Hitcher" - another tight, but very different performance from Hauer!

See this film if you can!
