Zwerfsters Details


This film was announced as the swan song performance of the beloved grande dame of Dutch stage, screen and TV, Loudhi Nijoff, who was 88 at the time it was filmed. In the film she is Louise, an elegant elderly lady who has no major health problems, and lives quite happily with her two cats. She has a good relationship with her daughter, and still has living friends. Following her usual Sunday routine, she dresses up quite nicely and goes out for a walk. There, she espies a cheerful bag lady going about her business. Louise observes the woman going to sleep on a public bench from her own nearby bench, and dozes off herself. On waking, she returns home only to find that no one sees her and that she cannot communicate with anyone. Gradually she realizes that she is dead, and the bag lady will lead her to where she must go. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
