Dutch filmmaker Fons Rademakers was one of his country's leading directors of the '60s and '70s. Born in Roosendael, Holland, he was educated at the Amsterdam Academy of Dramatic Art and debuted professionally as a stage actor and director. Rademakers entered films assisting such directors as Renoir and De Sica until making his own directorial debut in 1958. His films, such as The Knife (1960), are characterized by their psychological complexity.

In addition to directing, Rademakers also occasionally produced films. He was married to Lili Rademakers.
