South | Chicago Reader


The manager of a laundry, artfully played by Monic Hendrickx, gradually turns into a monster in this 2004 Dutch drama. She makes out on the job with her new driver, he leaps up after discovering that one of her breasts is a prosthesis, and her employees, thinking he's assaulted their beloved boss, lock him in the boiler room. Which is where the manager leaves him—for days. He's still screaming with thirst when she visits his wife to find out more about him. Director Martin Koolhoven treats the manager's wildly implausible behavior so nonjudgmentally he almost seems to endorse it—his film has an odd power but also an unpleasant aftertaste. In Dutch with subtitles. 88 min.
