Regent Entertainment genre label Here! Films has acquired North American distribution rights to Yes Nurse! No Nurse!
The company is planning a spring release. Based on a Dutch television show from the 1960s, the Pieter Kramer
-directed film is the musical tale of Nurse Klivia (Loes Luca
), who runs a rest home populated by a gang of lovable nutcases next door to Mr. Boordevol, their nasty landlord. Mark Reinhart
, executive vp distribution and acquisitions, acquired the film from worldwide sales agents Fortissimo Films. "Consistently funny and outrageous, Yes Nurse! No Nurse!
represents an exciting addition to our film roster," Reinhart said. "Think Singing in the Rain
meets Little Shop of Horrors
without all the murder and mayhem, and you can see why this fun and campy film has audiences rolling in the aisles with laughter." Added Fortissimo co-chairman Michael Werner: "We are delighted that Here! Films will bring Yes Nurse! No Nurse!
to North America." The film was released theatrically in Benelux by Warner Bros. Pictures.
