Martje is the manager of a successful laundry service, but in her personal life she struggles with her self-image after the amputation of one of her breasts. After she is humiliated when Loe, one of her employees, is startled by the discovery of her prosthesis during foreplay, she imprisons him in the laundry plant. As Loe is slowly dying in imprisonment, Martje loses contact with reality and starts imagining having a family with him.Written by
Originally Renée Soutendijk was going to play Martje, but during the writing of the last versions of the script director Martin Koolhoven understood he had made a mistake and decided to cast Monic Hendrickx in the leading part. Monic won the Golden Calf (the most prestigious Dutch movie award) for her part as Martje. See more »
A film that rips your soul apart. For me perhaps the best film of the
International Rotterdam Film festival. I hope it will come to
Belgium, so I can see it again. Monique Hendrickx and Oksana Akinshina (Lilya Forever) are the
heart of the film and play very well. Very, very well.... I came out crying. I give it 9 out of 10.
