Documentary

Director:
Simone de Vries

Language:
Dutch, English

Running Time: 62'

Main Cast:
Rutger Hauer - Himself

Plot:
This documentary is a close and intense focus on Rutger's life and career.

Rutger recently gave permission to the director - Simone de Vries - to be filmed during his professional and private life. For two years, she followed him throughout the world during his film shootings in Rumania and Spain, during his trips to the States, on his boat sailings, as well as to his beloved farm in The Netherlands.

Rutger also recalls his most incisive films, and amongst them he includes "The Legend of the Holy Drinker", the film he is obviously most proud of. He adds that "Soldier of Orange", the World War II drama directed by Paul Verhoeven, was his first real acting job and the push to start his career also in the States, where he was soon labelled as "Blond, blue eyes".

Amongst the most touching moments of this documentary, there are the meetings with Rutger and Erik Hazelhoff Roelfzema (the real Soldier of Orange), whom he considers his second father, friend and mentor.

'Blond, Blue Eyes' premiered in Utrecht during the Netherlands Film Festival, in October 2006.
