Full movie description "The Dark Room of Damocles":The fainthearted cigar trader Ducker keeps himself quiet during World War II. That changes when parachutist Dorbeck lands in his backyard. It turns out the parachutist bears a remarkable resemblance to Ducker. Ducker follows Dorbeck blindly, becomes involved in the Dutch resistance and soon starts killing people. When he escapes through German lines to the freed South Netherlands, no one has ever heard of Dorbeck.
Reviews of the The Dark Room of DamoclesAlfred Heineken (he of the beer) agreed to produce this Dutch film on the condition that his then-mistress Nan Los would get a part. When Los dumped him, Heineken withdrew all copies of the movie and it remained unseen for over thirty years. With Heineken dead, the movie is ready for rediscovery and with good reason: this is a great film! During WWII, schlemiel photographer Ducker has a chance encounter with heroic British agent Dorbeck who looks just like him. Dorbeck starts using Ducker, who idolizes him. Under his guidance, Ducker becomes involved in the resistance movement and the two grow more and more alike.
This premise then develops into a highly original story with plenty of twists and surprises, but director Fons Rademakers (Foreign Film Oscar 1987 for The Assault) also adds a top/bottom homo-erotic undercurrent to the relationship between the insecure and submissive Ducker and the übermensch Dorbeck in ways that would have made Hitchcock proud. At one point Ducker needs to go into hiding, Dorbeck puts him in a safe-house, orders him strip, disguises him as a woman and takes off with his other clothes, leaving Ducker to utter the immortal line: 'You should at least have left me my gun.' Talk about castration! It's time that BFI or Kino picks up Als Twee Druppels Water for international DVD distribution, because it belongs along with Soldier of Orange and The Vanishing among the best movies ever produced in Holland.
