TULIPS

Directed by Wim van der Linden
Netherlands, 1966
Documentary, Short

Synopsis

A vase of tulips is the starting point of Tulips. The filmmaker puts the tulip in another context than the traditional one (spring), by using a bombastic score with the images. This suggests an enormous emotional profundity, which in relation to ‘the tulip’ produces a comic effect.
