Go To

De Jurk is a 1996 film by Alex van Warmerdam. It follows a certain dress colored blue with orange leaf print. It passes from an owner to owner and somehow brings unluck to each of them.


  • Artifact of Doom: The titular dress. Whern a new woman acquires it things take dismal turn to her until she rids of it.
  • Jerkass: The boyfriend of Johanna, an artist who is only somewehat more gentle with her than both maniacs who attack her. This comparison is void though since he does not assault her. On the contrary he does not appear too interested.
  • Sweater Girl: Chantalle wears a red sweater after she escapes from the maniac. It might bear certain unexpected implications.
  • Villainous Rescue: Johanna is pursued by a maniac. She runs into the bus and asks it to speedaway. Then it turns out that the bus driver has his own plans about her.
