Little Tony (1998)
Farmer Brand can’t read and he is quite happy with that. His wife, Keet, who has to read him all the subtitles on the television, isn’t. She decides to hire a teacher for him. This is a beautiful young woman, called Lena. Brand falls in love with her. To his puzzlement and dismay Keet encourages him, because as she says she doesn’t want a husband with another woman in his head. She wants their love to grow stale. She also wants Lena to give Brand and her a son. The love between Brand and Lena does not grow stale easily and after the birth of little Teun, their strange menage a trois comes to a dramatic conclusion.

Maybe Alex van Warmerdam’s best film so far. What is it about? Lust, passion, jealousy, murder; about lengths a woman can go to to get what she yearns for. A drama, yes; but also the funniest film I saw in years (the humor is a bit dark but it’s fine with me) The three actors are excellent and Alex himself as Brandt is fantastic. A surrealist, eccentric and sad tale about family life.
