Some details about "Kort Amerikaans"
in new old Derek de Lint's interview from "Playboy Nederland", February, 1986
The movie begins by a scene, where somebody cut shortly the small boy with the large brown eyes
also he cries. And then we understand, that it is the main character.
A story occurs in Leiden, in 1944, in time occupation of Holland by the fascists. Derek stars a young artist Erik van Poelgeest. He is engaged in the experiences connected to family, with death of the brother and his youthful hypersexuality, which he can not satisfy with one girl and sleeps with a female sculpture. One of his girl Elly, by finding out this strange Erik's passion, breaks the sculpture and he becomes furious and throttles the girl. Elly's father comes to the house with policemen, they shoot Erik by the sub-machine-gun.
Sex scenes are filmed rather frankly, but Derek looks naked a very wonderfully.
