The screenings of 'Oh Lucy' will not be subtitled in Dutch as previously announced, but only in English.

"Setsuko is a lovelorn middle-aged office drone, chain-smoking her way to an early grave and deflecting all of life's vagaries with an agonised smile. Then salvation comes in the form of a handsome English-language teacher. A droll tragicomedy about Japan's lonely crowd, and a culture-clash farce." (The Guardian)
