Frank & Eva / Pim de la Parra



Frank & Eva: Living Apart Together

Frank (Blue Movie’s Hugo Metsers) and Eva (The Lift’s Willeke van Ammelrooy) cannot live with or without each other. In the liberal 1970s, Frank sleeps with every woman he can get. Eva, meanwhile, is looking for more security and wants to start a family. Frank’s behavior frustrates her so much that she starts an affair with their mutual friend. This social drama offers a view on relationships not much different than today. For Sylvia Kristel (her debut prior to Emmanuelle), a special role was written after she said to Pim de la Parra, “Why won’t you discover me? I’m the best.”

Frank & Eva is the second artsploitation film by director Pim de la Parra, after he produced Blue Movie with his partner Wim Verstappen. Cult Epics presents its worldwide premiere on Blu-ray & DVD, in High-definition with extensive bonus features.
