NARRATIVE SHORT | 11 MIN | unknown


If you were a fan of the soft-core Emmanuelle films of the '70s, '80s, and '90s, then Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel was likely your own personal sex goddess. However, Kristel also happens to be an avid painter, and in her directorial debut she waxes nostalgic about the Paris art scene during the start of her film career. It was a scene that revolved around figures like Hugo Claus, W.F. Hermans, and Kristel's own painting teacher Roland Topor.

About the Director(s)
Born on September 28, 1952 in Utrecht, the Netherlands, Sylvia Kristel fled her Calvinist home at an early age and headed to Amsterdam, where she made a career for herself as an actress and model. She first came to international attention in the '70s when she starred in the provocative French film Emmanuelle (1974), which remains one of France's biggest commercial successes. Included in her credits are a long list of European films, most notably the adaptation of Lady Chatterley's Lover (1981). In 1979 she headed to Hollywood, appearing in the Get Smart revival film The Nude Bomb (1980). This was merely a prelude to the controversial and wildly successful sex comedy Private Lessons (1981), which grossed over $50,000,000 worldwide. The Dutch actress, who speaks four languages (Dutch, English, Italian, and French), currently resides in Amsterdam with her son Arthur, also an actor. Topor and Me marks her directorial debut.
