Restored & Unseen: Als twee druppels water
Fons Rademakers / NL, 1963 / 116 min.
Just like author W.F. Hermans, Fons Rademakers (1920-2007) always remained intrigued by the behaviour of people during the Second World War. In his adaptation of Hermans’s novel De donkere kamer van Damokles – now screening in crisply restored 35mm – Rademakers explores the Doppelgänger motif and the boundaries between right and wrong in wartime.
