Jacob Katadreuffe lives mute with his mother, has no contact with his father who only works against him and wants to become a lawyer, at all costs.
Based on the novel 'Karakter' and the short story 'Dreverhaven and Katadreuffe' by Dutch writer F. Bordewijk (1884-1965). Bordewijk had always wanted to write a story about a feud between father and a son, which finally became a collection of short stories called 'Dreverhaven en Katadreuffe'. The novel 'Karakter' was released 10 years later, out of Bordewijk's desire to expand the story and the characters.
I came to tell you. Today I have been sworn in as a lawyer. You must be sorry but I am sworn in and this is the last time I'll come here. Farewell for ever. You no longer exist for me.
Jacob Katadreuffe: You congratulate me? I can't take your hand. ...
In one of the street scenes, you can see an extra in modern outfit and with no headwear on.
