Blue Movie was the most controversial and talked about Dutch film upon theatrical release, a sensation that brought millions of visitors to cinemas. Wim Verstappen’s most sensational taboo breaker premieres on Blu-ray and DVD on February 12th, 2019.
"After five years in prison, an ex-con returns to a society where total sexual freedom is now the norm. Michael (Frank & Eva’s Hugo Metsers) yearns for sex, and becomes fascinated by the amorous life of an attractive woman next door (Business Is Business’s Carry Tefsen), eventually organizing a series of sordid orgies with her and the neighbors..."
Produced by Pim de la Parra (Frank & Eva, Obsessions), and directed by his partner Verstappen, Blue Movie was a breakthrough commercial hit for their company Scorpio Films, and the start of the Golden Years of Dutch cinema, also known as the “Dutch Sex Wave.”
Presented by Cult Epics for the first time ever in High-definition on Blu-ray and DVD, and featuring cinematography by Jan De Bont (Turkish Delight, Private Lessons, Basic Instinct), now see for yourself what all the commotion was about!
