Pim de la Parra, Holland, 1973, Cult Epics, Cult

"The significance of [production company] Scorpio Films in those years was that Holland learnt that Dutch films existed and were worth watching." -- Paul Verhoeven

“I still believe sexuality is the most repressed human emotion.” -- FRANK & EVA director Pim de la Parra

Frank & Eva: Living Apart Together. Newly restored and available in North America for the first time, this high-wire, sexually charged drama is in the same league as Paul Verhoeven’s early Dutch treats TURKISH DELIGHT and SPETTERS.

Frank (Hugo Metsers, BLUE MOVE) and Eva (Willeke van Ammelrooy, THE LIFT) cannot live with or without each other. Horndog Frank sleeps with every woman he can find -- meanwhile, Eva looks for more security and wants to start a family. Frank’s borderline behavior frustrates her so much that she starts an affair with their mutual friend; cue the psycho fireworks! Co-starring Sylvia Kristel, in a debut prior to her making international headlines with the first EMMANUELLE!
