STORYLINE



Meet Louise and Martine Fokkens: 69-year-old identical twins who have worked as prostitutes in Amsterdam’s red light district for over 50 years. Louise is newly retired due to arthritis ( I couldn’t get one leg over the other ), but Martine carries on, unable to support herself on a state pension. Between explicit scenes of her daily grind, she and Louise stroll the city in matching outfits, recounting hilariously ribald stories from a lifetime of sex work. (Discussing a client who was a chaplain, one recalls: Don’t you remember, we even had a little confessional! ) An immensely affectionate portrait of two women who have seen and done everything (and everyone), Meet the Fokkens is a rollicking and revealing look at the world’s oldest profession in the 21st century.
