Original Title: De laasteste dagen van Emma Blank
Dutch with subtitles
89 minutes min
The Dutch master of madcap misanthropy returns to the Festival with a precise, pitch-black comedy set in the country home of terminally ill Emma Blank. Her domestic servants have long submitted to her venomous attitude and irrational whims with an eye on an inheritance (van Warmerdam himself plays a character ordered to serve as the family dog… see it to believe it), but slowly the truth about this way-offbeat household is revealed.
