About the event

This event intends to provide an appreciation platform for film-lovers among the Macau University of Science and Technology students. By "watching", we can review the history of world cinema and capture the developments and thoughts of movies from different countries. It intends to propagate students’ knowledge in film language and culture, and teach them varied ways of expression in films. In doing so, it can help improve their taste, creativity and imagination. 

About the film: "Stricken"

Stricken (2009) or Komt een Vrouw bij de Dokter in Dutch is about  Stijn (Barry Atsma): a rich, handsome and self-centered advertising executive who lives in a hedonistic world. He has a successful career and a loving marriage with Carmen (Carice van Houten). Occasionally he cheats, but it is tolerated due to his enthusiastic and impetuous character. Fate strikes as it turns out that Carmen is suffering from breast cancer. He supports her, but as it can sometimes be difficult, he often meets with Roos (Anna Drijver), whom he has a tempestuous affair with. After Carmen is declared cured, Stijn comes clean with his cheating, and breaks up with Roos. Afterwards Carmen becomes ill again, this time terminally. Stijn breaks his promise to Carmen and resumes his relationship with Roos, although Carmen forgives him…  

This movie is based on a Dutch novel, written by bestselling author Kluun 

Genre: Romantic drama
