Movie Info

The action in this dark Dutch comedy centers around De Jurk -- or the dress. Everyone involved with making, selling, or wearing the almost magical garment has something happen to them, and it is usually not good.

Audience Reviews for The Dress

Directed by Alex van Warmerdam, the same director who brought the recently viewed Grimm to the screen, The Dress is another somewhat surreal tale that follows a dress from its conception through the manufacturing process, and as it is worn by its various possessors. Most of those who came in contact with the dress came to some mischief. If Grimm would have been rated PG, then this one would probably have to be R, with a good bit of nudity, adult situations, and a certain creep factor. With these two films under my belt, I can definitely say I am a fan of the director's work. Quite an interesting filmmaker with a unique vision. I have several more of his films all queued up.

½

:A series of linked stories following the owners of a dress that always seems to bring bad luck to its wearer. Well-written, gloomy, quirky; but despite the linking device and several recurring characters, the stories lack a unifying thematic thread, beyond pessimism.
