'Black Book' takes major awards at Dutch fest

9 October 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

UTRECHT, The Netherlands -- Paul Verhoeven's World War II drama Black Book took the major awards Friday on the closing night of the 26th annual Dutch Film Festival. The Dutch submission for best foreign-language film at next year's Oscars won the Golden Calf for best film and best director, while the lead actress nod went to Carice van Houten, who won the award three times now. The night was a bit of a disappointment for Ober (Waiter), a dark comedy from Alex Van Warmerdam. The film had six nominations but only scored awards for best screenplay and best production design. Van Warmerdam picked up the screenplay nod while Gert Brinkers took production plaudits. »

'Ober' opens Netherlands fest

6 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

AMSTERDAM -- Black comedy Ober, the latest from director Alex Van Warmerdam, will open the 26th edition of the Netherlands Film Festival on Sept. 27. Produced by Amsterdam-based Graniet Film, Ober also is considered a candidate for the upcoming Venice International Film festival. The film deals with fifty-year-old waiter Edgar (Van Warmerdam), who has had enough of his miserable existence and literally demands a rewrite from the man writing his life story: no more difficult customers, no more wife, a new girlfriend, new neighbors. The Netherlands Film Festival runs Sept. 27-Oct. 6 in Utrecht. The program also features a tribute to Dutch actress Johanna ter Steege, known for her work with directors George Sluizer (The Vanishing), Istvan Szabo (Sweet Emma, Dear Bobe) and Bruce Beresford (Paradise Road). Ter Steege, currently shooting a film with French director Alice Winocour, will present a master class during the festival. »
