'Romance with Double Bass'
Amsterdam, Thu, 22. Oct 2009On 30 September 2009 the film 'Romance with Double Bass' made by Quirijn van Regteren Altena and director Janica Draisma was screened during the Dutch Film Festival in Utrecht.

'Romance with Double Bass' is a film by bassist Quirijn van Regteren Altena and director-actress Janica Draisma, presented during the Dutch Film Festival 2009 in Utrecht.
It is based on a short story by Anton Chekhov in which musician Smytchkov, on his way to the country house of prince Bibulov, by coincidence meets princess Bibulova. While they are bathing in the river, their clothes are stolen. Smytchkov finds a solution for the problem: He takes the double bass he carried with him out of its leather case and hides the princess in it. He waits until dark and then sets out for the house of the princess ...........
The music that accompanied the film was performed live by an ensemble conducted by Quirijn van Regteren Altena who also played the bassist in the film. Director Janica Draisma played the princess, but on the stage, too, her role came to life in a short dance.
