A MORNING OF SIX WEEKS

Netherlands, 1966 (MIFF 1967, Programme B)

Director: Nikolai van der Heyde

Jimmy is a racing driver; Annette a photographer's model - two people whose professions on the glamour fringe of modern society occupy enough of their time and energy to shroud the essential emptiness of their lives. They meet at Zandvoort, fall in love, and let love take its course. At first all seems to go well...

This is the first feature film of Nikolai van der Heyde, who has a number of shorts to his credit. The film is bilingual and its alternative title is Un Printemps en Hollande. Its complex story of feelings, the visual aspects, and the music, are well-integrated by the author-director in the framework of the film.
