De Boekverfilming

Feature film, 1998, 90 min.

The young director Lars is looking for an actress to play the lead in his new film. He selects three young women for this role, namely Julia, Sofie and Noor. Julia has just got a new boyfriend, a Moroccan whom she subjects to an integration test. Sofie, a student at cabaret school, has an open relationship with her roommate André and Noor is threatened by a stalker. Being in the running for the role is quite a strain on all three women's lives. It is clear that Lars is testing their stamina. The fight for the leading role starts and double dealings prevail. Lars and his film are a catalyst. De boekverfilming is a parody on the Dutch filmworld, with guestroles of some well-known Dutchmen.
