The Dutch contribution to this filmfestival:
The Fury (De Helleveeg)
Netherlands 2016. Dir: André van Duren. 112 min. DCP
Thursday, November 30, 2017 – 8:30pm

Hannah Hoekstra took top acting honours at both the Montréal World Film Festival and the Netherlands Film Festival for her role as an acerbic-tongued germophobe in Dutch film and television director André van Duren’s smart adaptation of the eponymous 2013 novel by A. F. Th. van der Heijden. “The Fury is a tragi-comedy centring on the relationship between ‘Tidy Tini’ (Hoekstra), a nitpicky woman suffering from mysophobia, and her nephew Albert. As a boy, Albert spied on his aunt and tried desperately to understand her semi-explicit fault-finding. Now a father, Albert is poised for a major confrontation with his past, in which all family secrets will be revealed” (Cineuropa). In Dutch with English subtitles.
