Adap­ta­tion of Kluun’s best­seller is the directing debut of Reinout Oerle­mans. Komt een vrouw bij de dokter tells the contro­ver­sial story of a flashy adver­tising guy who does not believe in monogamy and keeps sleeping around even after his wife has been diag­nosed with breast cancer. After Stijn marries Carmen, the hottest chick in Amsterdam’ and becomes a father, he retains several girl­friends. Carmen accepts his behav­iour, but when a lump in her left breast turns out to be malig­nant, their rela­tion­ship is put under pres­sure by Stijn’s polyamory’. Of all times, Stijn now begins a passionate rela­tion­ship with artist Roos, who becomes an outlet and a surro­gate wife for him. This adul­tery almost ends in divorce. Shortly after Stijn does choose for Carmen, the cancer has spread. The contrast between homi­ness and big-city life, the igno­rance of his surround­ings and unex­pected hallu­ci­na­tions illus­trate the conflict that tears Stijn up.
