The Film Choices of Adriaan van Dis
Adriaan van Dis once hosted the VPRO public-television programme "Zomergasten" ("Summer Guests"), in which he talked to guests about film and TV clips. Tonight we turn it around. Film journalist Bert Jansma interviews Van Dis about his favourites. We look at clips from Un prophète (A Prophet, 2009), about the prison system in France; The Attack (2012), about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, 1964), the musical starring Catherine Deneuve and Michel Legrand's enchanting soundtrack; and much more.
