Cinematographic adaptation of the controversial play 06 that was very successfully performed in the spring of 1994, directed by Johan Doesberg. During the play, the members of the audience, each in his or her own cubicle, looked at a video screen and used their own switching mechanism to follow an actor or actress of their choice. Filmmaker Theo van Gogh was so impressed by what he saw that he decided to film it. His feature film 06 tells the story of two people who meet each other through a premium rate phone number (06 numbers are like 800 numbers in the USA) and then have a stormy phone relationship. In eleven episodes, the viewer witnesses their advances and battle. Unlike the play, the film version chooses who is seen on screen.
