The method this documentary nowadays is named is 'docudrama'. It means that it includes fiction and non fiction, interviews and type of theatrical enjoy and I gotta tell I don't like that part of this film. Thom Hoffmann, the director is at the same time an actor who tried his first steps in the film making. Most of rolls he played in the beginning of his career are a type of existentialistic ones. Also the roll he played in the film from Adriaan Ditvoorst, the director who handles the movie about, is one of a troubled boy addicted to morphine.I saw all movies of this director and this movie is one of the better ones he made soon on. The director started with some movies what were very appreciated oninternational festivals like Locarno (for example Bertoluci appreciated his first film(s) very much. It were the early sixties and the existentialism took a high flight. Unfortunately the 'public' were less enthusiastic and from this film on the director more and more had difficulties with getting cash to create his films. In Holland there was and probably still is not the nice environment for making experimental movies. Anyway the documentary continues with interviews withpeople who saw close by the down fall of the director. It shows a boy whowanted to create movies, but had to war critics, producers, movie boards and in the end he started to war vs himself what resulted in the suicide of the man. What I like about the 'docudrama' is the dedication Thom shows for the director. He present honestly how he also had many issues with the hero of thedirector, but also the faith he had in his films. It's a sad storyline and he does nothing about it to hide that. That's okay, because almost nobody wants to hear sad stories nowadays so Thom stuck his neck out to create this film.The thing I didn't like so much were the 'played' parts in the film. Not the method it was played, but rather the choices he made what parts of his life were played. The great effect of the movie was that the director Ditvoorst again came back in the picture and the films he made were back in the cinema's and I was able tosee them on the screen. Before it was impossible to search any film of thedirector.
