Controversial when first released for its explicit sexual content, Verhoeven's Turkish Delight stars Rutger Hauer in his first major role and Monique Van de Ven in her screen debut, as a couple whose erotic obsessions make The Last Tango in Paris look like a square dance. An assault on middle-class values "underscored by a romanticism that slowly accumulates as time goes by. The difficulties of combining scatology and tenderness are neatly handled" (Derek Elley, Films and Filming).

Paul Verhoeven -- Netherlands -- 1973 -- 108 mins.
