Karakter (1997)

»I had achieved all I wanted, but at the same time nothing«

A stunning portrait of 1920s Holland, coming across as a dark fairy tale of illegitimacy, control – and patricide? Follows a disjointed family through turbulent times, with an ambitious son in the shadows of stubborn parents incapable of expressing emotion. Shows how brave determination, relentless drive, and lust for independence easily transforms into unscrupulous career hunger, opportunism, and indifference to others.

An internalized class struggle that unexpectedly made me think of »A boy named Sue«. In my book of tension, urgency, belonging – and books.
