Jeroen Spitzenberger find the movies to be produced quickly to be

Jeroen Spitzenberger has over the years found that the quality of (film)scripts are not often high. “It says something about the Dutch filmklimaat, in which there are to be quickly produced, without good raw material.”

“What is your material? What is the story? Sometimes it seems like that step is underestimated, leaving you with less material to the corridor,” explains the forty-year actor in conversation with Esquire.

Spitzenberger, known for roles in Divorce and love is All, suggests that now is the time to take scripts and projects. “They would be better as they have more time to mature. But the time is not, the budgets are there, and in a larger context: the culture there is not to.”

“Of course there are fantastic exceptions, but too often are series made like this: a station has space, so is there a command thrown out as “we want something with hospitals or police officers and it would be too crazy if that and that in the lead can’. Then put a couple of production houses a finger on. “When should it go? Mid-september? Fine.”


The Dutchman hopes that filmmakers raise the bar a little higher would put. “Everyone looks to the Scandinavian series and says: ‘What a good script, what a tension, there is well performed!’ Give me a break. Do you think they can do better acting than here? Nonsense. It’s always the people who doesn’t act know, who say this.”
