De vierde Man

Genre: Drama


.. if I tell the dwarf story often enough,

I'll start to believe it myself.

And that, I think,

is the essence of my writing.

I lie the truth.

Until I no longer know whether

something did or did not happen.

That's when it gets exciting.

What you make of reality...

... is infinitely more interesting

than reality itself.

The cards, ladies and gentlemen!

To note down your questions

for after the intermission...

... so Mr. Reve can answer them

one by one.

Have you had a drink yet?

No, not yet. Who is the lady

that keeps filming me?

Oh, our treasurer.

May I introduce you?

Christine Halslag.

She'll give you your fee afterwards.

Get Mr. Reve a drink,

I've got to collect the cards!


You flatter me. All that film footage...

Yes, I thought:
such a celebrity

is not going to escape me.


...that doesn't buy you

a square meal in Holland.

- Is it that bad?

- Worse.

The 250 you're paying me for this

is a windfall.

- Would you autograph your book?

- Sure.

I'll get you a drink.

I loved your talk.

- Good. Buy my other books too.

- I certainly will.

This is on the house.

Tomato juice?

A bloody Mary with lots of vodka.

The bartender has a liberal hand.

But I'm not a drinker,

the odd glass of wine...

- I'll get you a soft drink.

- Leave it, I'll make do with this.

Are you going back to

Amsterdam tonight?

Depends on the number of questions,

if I can catch the train.

We've booked you into a hotel,

just in case.

I hate hotel rooms,

they're like torture chambers.

But it's the best hotel in town.


There it is.

Anything wrong?

It's first class.

VI P's always stay there.

A hotel to hang yourself in.

What else can you do there?

You can read the Bible of course...

... or jack yourself off, right?
