Ouwehoeren Documentary film, 2011, 78 min.

Louise and Martine Fokkens are identical twins of 69. For nearly half a century, they worked behind the windows of the Amsterdam red-light district together. In these years, they saw ?their? Wallen change into a tourist attraction where big-shot criminals hold sway and the competition grows ever younger and comes from farther away. Rheumatism forced Louise to quit, but Martine is still in the business. For this candid documentary, the remarkable twins were followed for a year. The result is a glimpse of a world where love is for sale and the curtains are usually closed. What are the secrets and codes of the metier? Between the comic reliefs and anecdotes, more awkward questions urge themselves. What is it like to sell your body all your life? And what does it mean to grow older: as a hooker, but obviously also as a woman?
