Phileine Says Sorry

OT: Phileine zegt sorry

Robert Jan Westdijk // Netherlands, 2003
Fiction Feature // FF2004



Phileine is self-confident, bitchy and jealous. And saying sorry is simply not her thing. Secretly pursuing her actor boy-friend Max to New York, she finds him, as Romeo, having sex on stage with Juliet, and disrupts the performance – much to the delight of the media. Phileine becomes an overnight celebrity, but Max doesn’t want to know… Robert Jan Westdijk’s pacy and visually powerful romantic comedy has won several awards.
