Description: The action in this dark Dutch comedy centers upon the creation of the title garment and shows the adverse affects it has upon the lives of those involved with making, selling and wearing it. Each stage of the dress's life is punctuated by an excerpt from a nearby person's life which in turn adds something (usually negative) to the almost magical garment. Grim things tend to happen to whomever dons the dress, including humiliation and near-rape.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
