The first becomes his brilliant career, which takes off so well he gets invited to a prestigious New York theatre course for a year. But since he met fickle bitch Phileine in an Utrecht park, his flirting life is cut short while she cruelly plays with his feelings rather then his horny body. After refusing to follow him, she turns up uninvited later and still acts jealous and possessive. Grief follows for everyone, working up to a convoluted finale.

  • A Dutch girl is getting sick of always losing her boyfriends, so when she loses her newest "gain" she decides to follow Max (her friend) to New York where he's starting a career as an actor.

  • Phileine Zegt Sorry starts out in a park where she's sitting with her boyfriend and telling the audience how satisfied she is. Then all hell breaks loose - her boyfriend tells her that he will be going to America for a year. The entire movie is about how she deals with not having him, how she goes to America and realizes just how much of a bitch she is. She has a lot of fun and pain doing it, but it's wonderful to watch the character development - how would you react if your boyfriend was in Romeo and Juliet and had to have sex with Juliet on stage and didn't tell you?
