“f you are ever interested in Dutch movies, you must see this flick. It is the masterpiece that influenced every single Dutch movies that came afterwards and I'm deadly serious. I mean, in spite of its highly sexual content, it was in 1973 the most successful Dutch film ever and it's still the most attended Dutch film in the Netherlands (almost 40 years later!). So, it is huge, the best movie ever made by Paul Verhoeven and I really love it. I saw it again recently and I thought it was even better than the 1st time I watched it. Indeed, in my opinion, it is one of the best love stories I have ever seen. There is a one of a kind chemistry between Rutger Hauer and Monique van de Ven and they both gave some tremendous performances. Even though I'm usually not fond of randomness, I thought it ” read more

"10.9. Digiboksi Kohtalaisen häiriintynyt ja pimeä rakkaustarina. Siinä samalla kuitenkin poikkeuksellisen aito ja jopa liikuttava. Ei kai kukaan koskaan oo tosissaan väittänyt, ettei rakkaus olisi välillä häiriintynyttä tai pimeää. Aikalailla uskomattoman hienoa kerrontaa, etenkin kun yleensä on nähty hollywoodilaista rakkaustarinaa."

"24.8. Kaikessa härskiydessään ja pimeydessään aivan mielettömän aito ja luonnollinen elokuvateos, jossa katsoja alkaa salakavalasti välittämään murhasta fantasioivasta ja kaikki hoitonsa kerrasta dumppaavasta tyypistä. Hauerin ja Monique van de Venin spedeilyt ovat aivan kertakaikkisen hulvatonta ja valloittavaa katsottavaa, minkä seurauksena heidän onnensa hajoaminen tekee aidosti kipeää. Niin paljon kun pidän Verhoevenin Hollywood-tuotannosta, tässä hänen kykynsä hallita "

A Complete review of Paul Verhoeven's work (14 movies items)

" Original Title : 'Turks Fruit' Cast : Monique van de Ven, Rutger Hauer What was it about? This movie stars Rutger Hauer as a gifted Dutch sculptor who has a stormy, erotic, and star-crossed romance with a beautiful young girl. The story follows the arc of their relationship and his interaction with her family. My two cents: If you are ever interested in Dutch movies, you must see this flick. It is the masterpiece that influenced every single Dutch movies that came afterwards and I'm de"

"Katsottu: 30.6.2012 Alussa näytetään, kuinka turhautunut Hauer on elämäänsä. Sitä sävyttävät lukuisat yhden yön hoidot. Erinomaisen alun jälkeen, katsojalle sitten kerrotaan, miten Hauerin elämästä on tullut niin yhdentekevää. Tämä alku nappasi minut todella hyvin mukaan, ja koko loppu elokuva olikin silkkaa ihanuutta. Turkish Delight on ehdottomasti paras näkemäni elokuva rakkaudesta, intohimosta ja kaikesta mitä nämä kaksi asiaa pitävät sisällään. Näyttelijöiden"

"29.5. TV Hyvin maaginen ja vangitseva kokemus. Verhoevenin odottamattomat ja epähollywoodmaiset ratkaisut, upea värimaailma ja musta huumori ovat hienoa seurattavaa. Nyt tajuan miksi ohjaajaa niin paljon hehkutetaan."

"Directed by Paul Verhoeven. Eric, a sculptor, wakes up recalling a disturbing dream followed by frantically picking up random women from the streets and taking them back to his studio for sex. However, he is clearly distressed about something, and it turns out that this is the aftermath of his breakup with Olga. The movie then recounts his relationship with Olga. Verhoeven's cruel visual style is very effective. Verhoeven isn't afraid of showing bare skin or cruel executions and everything is b"
