THE COOL LAKES OF DEATH

Nouchka van Brakel, Netherlands, 1982, Cult Epics, Arthouse

Pioneering feminist Nouchka van Brakel was Holland’s first successful female filmmaker, in the same league with Lina Wertmüller and Margarethe von Trotta. Her provocative, yet compassionate work comes to North American screens for the first time in brand-new restorations! This Dutch box office smash is van Brakel’s magnum opus, a historical melodrama with an outstanding performance by Renée Soutendijk (Verhoeven’s SPETTERS and THE 4TH MAN). She plays Hedwig, a woman trapped in a loveless marriage who goes through the loss of both her lover and child.
