Documentary on Herman Koch
A documentary about the ‘real Herman Koch’ premiered last week at the annual Dutch Film Festival. Herman Koch is one of the best-selling and most translated author of The Netherlands, yet he is averse to publicity. Echt Herman Koch tries to show who Herman Koch really is. He is known as an amicable and obliging man, but his equally charming characters often turn out to be dark and immoral. What does this say about him? Old friends, family and authors talk to director Pieter Verhoeff, previous winner of two Golden Calfs, about the mystery that is Herman Koch. What is the true face of the succesful author and television producer?
