Tribute to Jeroen Krabbé
A Dutch native, Jeroen Krabbé was born to an artistic family of painters and his first studies were in that direction as well. However, during the course of his studies, he turned in another direction and began his acting career upon graduating from the Amsterdam School for the Arts. He extended his artistic ambitions in the following years and added directing, play translating, and costume design to his portfolio, and he eventually returned to painting as well.
Krabbé's first important opportunity came from another Dutch native, Paul Verhoeven, who later became a famous Hollywood director ((RoboCop – 1987, (Basic Instinct – 1982, (Starship Troopers - 1997), who offered him the role of Gus, a student leader murdered by the Nazis, in an anti-war drama, (Soldier of Orange (1977). Krabbé met Verhoeven again during the shooting of a psychological thriller, The Fourth Man (1983), where he played a homosexual writer drowning in alcohol and sex. Their collaboration opened Hollywood’s door to Krabbé and he portrayed numerous distinctive roles, mostly villains. He became a gangster ((No Mercy, 1986), spy, secret agent, Mafioso ((The Punisher, 1989), or the villain in a Bond film, (The Living Daylights (1987). And it was these scoundrels who brought international fame to Krabbé. A man of many faces due to his profession, Krabbé has recently appeared in roles that are far from negative. Many of his characters find themselves lost, in life situations full of contradictions, and they must search for direction. In (Albert Schweitzer (2009), one of his latest distinctive roles, he portrayed the complicated personality of a leading world philosopher and doctor at the time when he was not only awarded the Nobel Peace Price, but also became a person of interest to the CIA during the Cold War because of his political opinions.
Krabbé began directing in the late 1990s. He produced his own directorial debut, (Left Luggage (1998), where he focused on an orthodox Jewish family dealing with the past, and he portrayed one of the supporting roles opposite Isabella Rossellini. The psychological drama is a loose adaptation of Carl Friedman's novel of the same name. The second film Krabbé directed is also a book adaptation – (The Discovery of Heaven (2001) follows the changes in the Netherlands through ironic references to the politics of that time, and playfully points out the never-ending cycle of cause and effect.
