During his 50th birthday party thrown by his wife, Remco's life takes a turn for the worse. His business partners are scheming behind his back to sell him out and his former mistress shows up pregnant.
Sort of a cross between "Love Story" and an earthy Rembrandt painting, this movie stars Rutger Hauer as a gifted Dutch sculptor who has a stormy, erotic, and star-crossed romance with a beautiful young girl. The story follows the arc of their relationship and his interaction with her family. Told in flashback form, initially Hauer is seen as a libertine lothario collector, taking trophies from his sexual conquests and pasting them in a book. He sees a sculpture he made of his lost lover and goes into a flashback of his relationship with his wife. He meets the girl, falls in love with/marries her, and we meet her parents: a charming, well meaning, bumbling father, and his shrew of a wife, who's convinced Hauer's too much of a bohemian to make a good mate for her daughter. Eventually, the petty jealousies, the sexual hijinks, and the climactic vomit scene prove too much for the marriage, and sculptor and his lady fair separate. Flash forward several months, and Hauer finds the girl back...Written by
Director Paul Verhoeven and director of photography Jan de Bont had just seen The French Connection (1971), and agreed that its realistic look with natural light, hand-held photography and staccato editing would be perfect for Turks Fruit. However, when filming started, Verhoeven got cold feet, and wanted to revert to fixed cameras and artificial lighting, just as he had shot his previous movie, Diary of a Hooker (1971). De Bont bluntly refused to comply and shot the first scenes the way he intended. This caused a major falling-out between them, and Verhoeven nearly had de Bont fired after three days of shooting. However, after seeing the first rushes, Verhoeven admitted that he was wrong, and that de Bont had made the right decision. See more »

Ok i might be biased,i am an intense Rutger Hauer fan
I was given the video of the film a few years ago for Christmas and i had never heard of it,that's probably because my copy of the film is called "WILD INTENT" I strongly recomend any one of the appropriate age (it's raited as an eighteen for a reason!} To give it at leased one viewing. Allthough it's not one of Rutger Hauer's most spectacularely voilent films, nor does it have vibrant special effects,it has everything els in it, sex, humour and romance with a twist! It has it's own formular of Rutger's magic charm, he is in top form in this film, as it might have been embarrasing for some to act the part but Rutger does it with ease.If you are looking for it in england and can't find it i sugest you try the "WILD INTENT" title.As a Rutger Hauer fan i give this film a raiting of 9 out of 10.
