TIRAMISU

The Netherlands, 2007 (MIFF 2008, International Panorama)

Director: Paula van der Oest

TIRAMISU

The worlds of a flamboyant diva and a straight-laced bookkeeper collide in a feel-good comedy from Dutch director Paula van der Oest.

Despite sell-out crowds and a string of successful performances, Anne - flamboyant star of the stage - is past her prime and in financial ruin. Enter Jacob, an extremely mild mannered bookkeeper who discovers the situation is so dire that Anne will have to give up her beloved houseboat.
The glamorous life of an actress and her equally glamorous friends opens up a new world for Jacob, who soon neglects his own mundane existence in order to hatch a plan to save the houseboat, and give Anne another chance to prove she still has what it takes.
