Meet the Fokkens2011

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.6
Meet Louise and Martine Fokkens: 69-year-old identical twins who have worked in Amsterdam's red light district for over 50 years. Louise is newly retired due to arthritis ("I couldn't get one leg over the other"), but Martine carries on, unable to support herself on a state pension. Between scenes of her daily grind, she and Louise stroll the city in matching outfits, recounting hilariously ribald stories from a lifetime of work. (Discussing a client who was a chaplain, one recalls: "Don't you remember, we even had a little confessional"). An immensely affectionate portrait of two women who have seen and done everything (and everyone), Meet the Fokkens is a rollicking and revealing look at the world's oldest profession in the 21st century.

I am of Dutch background and I think it was quite funny in its own way
