Did You Know?

According to Paul Verhoeven, in the majority of submitted screenplays that he received, the wife openly condemned her husband's extramarital affair. He chose to ignore this in lieu of having the wife stoically accept it, which he found a much more interesting and less predictable situation.See more »

Short and sweet, 22 November 2013
Author: kosmasp

Maybe sweet is the wrong word to use, especially when it comes to a movie made by Paul Verhoeven. But I really liked this one. It may be predictable (to a point), but it is a fun watch, with some really good moments. It's not PC (expected), but it's also very short, running just under an hour.

Paul wanted to stay active so he made this movie, while waiting for a bigger job to happen. That doesn't mean he just went ahead and made it fast and without planning. There is a making of on the DVD that shows you the preparation he took and how he planned a lot of things. He treated this like a feature length even though it wasn't. It's also "european", so expect nudity and other things in it
