De Man die zijn haar kort liet knippen Reviews
Watching it, you can tell where it probably inspired Belgian film students for generations to come, indeed shaping a lot of the movies that followed it in style, plot, cinematography, characters, etc. Since the lead character never quite knows what is real and what isn't, neither does the viewer, but once you've settled into the groove of "wait, what?" and go with it, there are some riveting scenes, such as the one where Govert confronts Fran at a hotel.
That being said, this was made by the BRT in 1966, and in between the riveting scenes, there's a lot of long stretching dull and overpronounced Standard Dutch that may not be easy to sit through for everyone.
The philosophy of it all, perhaps. Why film?
