‘The Heineken kidnapping’ tells the true story of the abduction of beer magnate Freddy Heineken and his chauffeur Ab Doderer. The kidnapping dominated Dutch headlines for weeks on end in 1983. Dutch ‘top criminals’ Cor van Hout and Willem Holleeder were among the brutal masterminds. Dutch actor Rutger Hauer (1944 – 2019) plays the part of Freddy Heineken.

About the Filmclub

Four times a year Dutch language school Direct Dutch Institute and Bibliotheek Den Haag, organise a filmclub with Dutch movies for internationals living in The Hague (and surroundings).

Since everybody is required to speak in simple Dutch (no English allowed), this is a great opportunity to actually speak Dutch! Of course there are teachers present who will help you with your Dutch.

In the course of the afternoon, we will watch the movie and discuss it in small groups, ending in a group discussion. Our program is suitable for everyone with (at least) an elementary knowledge of Dutch (A1/A2) who would like to engage in Dutch culture and build on his or her conversation skills in an informal and fun way.


The filmclub is organised by Direct Dutch Institute and Public Library The Hague.
