In this early Paul Verhoeven movie, a young poor Dutch girl named Katie (Monique van de Ven) is sold into slavery. She later joins a brothel (called a “convent”) and falls for a suave gentleman (Rutger Hauer). Verhoeven trots out some female flesh (later to become his staple), but unfortunately the movie is slow moving and boring. It’s definitely no Showgirls. Future director Jan (Speed) de Bont was the cinematographer.
