Directed by Paul Verhoeven
Controversial when first
released for its explicit sexual content, Verhoeven's Turkish Delight
stars Rutger Hauer in his first major role and Monique Van de Ven in her
screen debut, as a couple whose erotic obsessions make The Last Tango in
Paris look like a square dance. An assault on middle-class values
"underscored by a romanticism that slowly accumulates as time goes by. The
difficulties of combining scatology and tenderness are neatly handled"
(Derek Elley, Films and Filming). Dutch with English subtitles.
