"Geen Sympathiek figuur"  (trailer)

For half a year I have filmed my parents. After a marriage of 52 years, this part of their life shows the thin border between frustration and love. The film features a relationship  which is roughly disturbed by Alzheimer. As a former vicar my father was a good performer in public. Besides this ability of speaking his profession contained also a social function. He spent a lot of time visiting people with mental and physical problems. Years later he also seemed to be at the other side of the line and Alzheimer has made him a dependent man. My mum could hardly get used to this and the new situation required a lot of patience and care. The movie shows an emotional balance between the heaviness of this disease combined with a certain amount of humor. (password required)
