MY REVIEW

THE STORY OF THIS MOVIE ITS A BEAUTY.
 
BASED ON A TRUE STORY ITS A FILM THAT SHOWS US THE PERIOD IN A WOMAN'S LIFE WHEN SHE DECIDES TO TRAVEL TO HOLLAND SEARCHING FOR A NEW LIFE
IT IS ANOTHER GREAT EUROPEAN  FILM AND WITH THE MAGICAL TOUCH OF PAUL VERHOVEN WHO MADE SOME EXTRAORDINARY MOVIES IN THAT PERIOD OF HIS LIFE.
 
RUTGER HAUER PLAYS IT IN THE SAME WAY HE USED US AND THE EFFECT OF IS WORK IS DEFINITLY ONE OF THE REASONS I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
A GOOD EXAMPLE OF HOW  A GOOD DIRECTOR CREATES A GREAT MOVIE WITHOUT AN HIG BUDJET, KATYE TYPPEL REMAINS UNTOUCHABLE AS ONE FINE MOVIES OF THE DECADE OF 70s AND IT IS ONE OF THE MOVIES I STILL LIKE TO SEE EACH TIME I CAN.
 
THE STORY OF KATIE TYPPEL ITS FULL OF SENSIVITY AND THE STRUGGLE OF A YOUNG WOMAN TO REACH A LIFE FARAWAY FROM THE DARK ROADS OF PROSTITUTION AND SEXUAL ARRASSMENT IS ALWAYS
PART OF SOCIETY BECAUSE IT IS UNFORTUNATELLY A EVERYDAY STORY OF MANY WOMEN OF OUR TIME.
 
VERHOVEN 'S POINTS OF VIEW ARE ALWAYS DEEP AND STRONG AND THIS MOVIE COULDNT BE A BETTER EXAMPLE OF HIS KIND OF IDEAS ABOUT SOCIETY AND COSTUMES.
 
A GREAT MOVIE NOT FOR ALL AGES OF COURSE ,BUT A MOVIE FOR ALL THOSE WHO LIKES THE STYLE OF THIS DIRECTOR.
RUTGERHAUER BEINGAS HIS BEST AND A WONDERFUL CAST MAKES FROM THIS FILM A VERY GOOD REASON TO ENJOY THE GOOD EUROPEAN CINEMA.
