Passionfruit | Chicago Reader


Armin is living with his longtime girlfriend and son by his late first wife when he learns that he's always been sterile. He becomes obsessed with finding his son's biological father, but he's driven less by concern for the boy than by his own hurt pride at discovering that his wife had an affair. This 2003 film, based on the novel of the same title, has some dramatic moments and some mordantly comic episodes. But director Maarten Treurniet's intercut flashbacks and fantasy sequences—Armin imagines hitting one person, making love with another—don't add psychological depth, since everyone's feelings and actions are predictable. In Dutch with subtitles. 105 min.
