Storyline

Leon Mortier, a wealthy publisher, whilst driving through the forest one day, stops when he sees Lulu walking down the long narrow road. She gets into the car. Leon is amused and intrigued by her. When he pulls off, suddenly out of nowhere a man appears in front of the car and Leon accidentally hits him. He decides to take them both home to recover. Leon falls madly in love with Lulu. Both Lulu and the man stay on with him in the house. Lulu's behavior is unpredictable. Leon becomes suspicious and paranoid about her. As he begins to suspect that his friends are being unfaithful with Lulu, he decides to throw a dinner party with some of his closest friends. During the dinner he wants to confront them with their infidelity and expel them all from his life with Lulu. But when he discovers his son in the arms of Lulu, he decides also to get rid of her, a plan which backfires in a most unexpected way. Written by Anonymous

Pretentious
17 April 2006 | by (Gorinchem, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I don't like a movie where the makers go to great lengths to put (hide is a better word I guess) a meaning in everything. In the case of Lulu the end result is a film where the actors are wooden puppets, the words are (as is typical in Dutch movies) hard to understand (result of mumbling/poor sound levels) and the whole 'feel' of the movie is forced and unrealistic.

Maybe this was too arty-farty for me, but I usually like this kind of movie. The four points I gave are for the ever so lovely Lulu...who is a joy to watch. And Georgina Verbaan is playing her favorite role again; seems the only thing she can do right: playing a cheap broad.

In my opinion, Lulu had a lot of potential but it's wasted by the efforts to make this an art movie. Such a shame...
