Stricken (Komt een vrouw bij de dokter) (2009)

A couple in a Lubitschean marriage find their arrangement unworkable when the Missus has a Terminal Illness and the hubby continues his womanising.

It's a virtuous woman dying melodrama with a huge curveball. You're treated to multiple interpretations of her arrangement with the husband and the buffet of possibilities make for delicious viewing.

The fun and creative storytelling ends when it collapses down to one possibility by the time the lady expires.
