The chief reason one might want to see this deservedly obscure film is to check out Rutger Hauer in his early days. However, Hauer fans, be advised that the actor is not really “in” this film. In fact, Hauer himself denies ever having met the director, let alone having participated in the making of “La Donneuse”. Evidently what transpired is that the director took a camera and surreptitiously caught Hauer in candid shots (à la Steve Martin vis-à-vis Eddie Murphy in “Bowfinger”) and then added the images of Hauer to the film without the star’s knowledge.
Perhaps then there is a reason to see this white elephant other than Hauer: it could be the true life inspiration for “Bowfinger”. Just don’t go hunting it down or paying a fortune for it in auction in expectation of something with Rutger Hauer “in” it.
