After five years in prison, an ex-con returns to a society where total sexual freedom is now the norm.

BLUE MOVIE was the most controversial and talked about Dutch film upon theatrical release – a sensation that brought millions of visitors to cinemas. Produced by Pim de la Parra (FRANK & EVA, OBSESSIONS), and directed by his partner Wim Verstappen, BLUE MOVIE was a breakthrough commercial hit for their company Scorpio Films – and the start of the Golden Years of Dutch cinema, also known as the “Dutch Sex Wave.” Presented by Cult Epics for the first time ever in hi-definition on Blu-ray and DVD, and featuring cinematography by Jan De Bont (TURKISH DELIGHT, PRIVATE LESSONS, BASIC INSTINCT) – now see for yourself what all the commotion was about!
