Dokter Pulder zaait papavers

Bert Haanstra / NL, 1975 / 105 min.

If you mainly have Bert Haanstra down as the genial chronicler of the Dutch national character in Alleman and Fanfare, his third feature film will be a bit of a surprise. The active ingredients of Haanstra’s Dokter Pulder zaait papavers are substance abuse, suicide and lurking madness. A classic film with a superb performance by Kees Brusse. Screened in 35mm (Eye collection).
