Farmer Brand can't read and he is quite happy with that. His wife, Keet, who has to read him all the subtitles on the television, isn't. She decides to hire a teacher for him. This is a beautiful young woman, called Lena. Brand falls in love with her. To his puzzlement and dismay Keet encourages him, because as she says she doesn't want a husband with another woman in his head. She wants their love to grow stale. She also wants Lena to give Brand and her a son. The love between Brand and Lena does not grow stale easily and after the birth of little Teun, their strange menage a trois comes to a dramatic conclusion.Written by

Those who've seen De Jurk are probably used to the style and v the kind of humor.
On the slow rhythm brought by the fresh early mornings on the (so flat) Dutch countryside, you are witnessing the hilarious situation of a remote, pathetic couple to a tricky and scary menage a trois... The actors are excellent and their scarce words take you to intrigue, laughter as well as disgust and horror. Warmerdam plays with his characters' fantaisies and perversities and in fact with the spectator's as he leaves so much to imagine...
An excellent cinema experience for a great movie !
