Interview
A middle-aged journalist interviews the real-life Dutch star Katja Schuurman, in her own loft. Pierre, the journalist, is annoyed at being given such a fluffy assignment, as he is normally a political correspondent. Initially he has no questions for Katja, but soon they are coaxing their darkest secrets out of each other.

Blind Date
This drama offers insight into male-female relationships as it chronicles several encounters between a bereaved mother who just lost her young daughter and a middle aged man. The story takes place inside the lounge of the Amsterdam Hilton where the two go for alcohol and solace. At one time both of them were entertainers. He had a magic/comedy act and she was a tap dancer. The plot chronicles several of their conversations during different meetings.

1-900
Theo van Gogh s outrageously frank 1-900 is a lot more than just talk. Two lonely professionals meet through a sex-line and begin a weekly rendezvous via the telephone. It turns erotic, funny, frustrating, and even sinister, as they become increasingly attached to one another. Despite the initial rules of the game the two can never meet, nor even know one another s identities neither partner can help wishing for more intimate contact. 1-900 is a provocative and sexually charged exploration of the boundaries of imagination, fantasy and power.
