BASTILLE  (1984)

Derek de Lint, Geert de Jong, Evelyne Dress

Directed by
Rudolf van den Berg

Plot Summary
Paul de Wit has a fine family life with his wife and two daughters, a good job as a history teacher and is writing an ambitious book about the French Revolution. Paul goes to Paris to do research for his book. There he falls in love with Nadine, a Jewish student. He tells her he was born in hiding in 1943, and was the only member of his family to escape deportation. He never knew his parents or his twin brother Philip. Back home in Holland, Paul looks at a picture he took of Nadine at the Place de la Bastille and discovers a passer-by just in back of her who is the spitting image of himself. He becomes obsessed with the idea that it might be his long lost brother. He breaks his ties with everyday reality and goes in search of his brother.
