Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Simon Carmiggelt wrote a daily column called "Kronkel" (Dutch for "twist," or "coil") for 30 years in the Netherlands that humorously and generously portrayed the human condition; this film is a cinematic version of his "Kronkel" columns. His friend and occasional collaborator in past ventures, the Oscar-winning Bert Haanstra directed. Each vignette in the film rests on its own natural dialogue as people reveal their thoughts and feelings. Thespian history is also put on parade from the early histrionic scenes most common in the silents to the slick cabaret acts of modern performers.
