AMSTERDAM — A documentary about Dutch actor Rutger Hauer is to premiere at the Netherlands Film Festival in Utrecht on 4 October.
Entitled 'Blond, Blue Eyes', the documentary was made by Simone de Vries who followed the 62-year-old actor over a two-year period.
It shows Hauer in Hollywood, in his home in the northern Dutch province of Friesland, and on film sets in Romania and in Real Madrid's stadium.
Hauer speaks candidly about his many-sided career and his relationship with his wife. It is noteworthy that Hauer gave De Vries permission to film him as intensively as he is known to be publicity shy.
Born in Breukelen in 1944, Hauer has played more than 100 roles. His first break came in 1969 in Paul Verhoeven's Dutch series about the knight Floris. They worked together subsequently on the films Turks Fruit (1973), Soldaat van Oranje (1977) and Spetters (1980).
Hauer left for Hollywood after that and featured in cult hits such as Blade Runner (1982) and The Hitcher (1986). Since then he has mainly played the villain in B-films. He appeared last year in Sin City and Batman Begins.
