Hoogste tijd Feature film, 1995, 100 min.

Feature based on the novel by Harry Mulisch about an insignificant cabaret artiste who gets a belated chance to prove himself as a scion of a famous acting family. As an old man he is asked to play the lead in a play about an actor playing his last great role at the turn of the century. During the rehearsals, the aged artist is confronted with painful events in his ownpast and missed opportunities in his life. Hoogste tijd (Last Call) juxtaposes different temporal and narrative lines. The film is about lost chances but also about the fear of mediocrity, the power struggle between actor and director, the secret of acting and the boundary between actor and role. Golden Calf for Best Actor for Rijk de Gooyer.
