Help, de dokter verzuipt

Nikolai van der Heyde / NL, 1974

After decades of Dutch film production being dismissed as substandard by Dutch critics, it is time for a fair reassessment of our cinematic heritage. Eye filmmuseum makes the case for forgotten or underappreciated Dutch films, with Help! The Doctor is Drowning by the recently deceased Nikolai van der Heyde as a prime example.
