All about Rutger at Netherlands film festival

29 August 2006


AMSTERDAM A documentary about Dutch actor Rutger Hauer is to premiere at the Netherlands Film Festival in Utrecht on 4 October.

Entitled 'Blond, Blue Eyes', the documentary was made by Simone de Vries who followed the 62-year-old actor over a two-year period.

It shows Hauer in Hollywood, in his home in the northern Dutch province of Friesland, and on film sets in Romania and in Real Madrid's stadium.

Hauer speaks candidly about his many-sided career and his relationship with his wife. It is noteworthy that Hauer gave De Vries permission to film him as intensively as he is known to be publicity shy.
