Cult Epics presents the NOUCHKA VAN BRAKEL TRILOGY; three subversive and controversial films dealing with strong female characters and their sexual identity in society.

THE DEBUT (Het Debuut) tells the delicate story of the impossible love between a teenage schoolgirl (played by Marina de Graaf) and a middle-aged married man (Gerard Cox). Arthouse LGBT favorite

A WOMAN LIKE EVE (Een Vrouw als Eva) is a drama about a wife (Moniek van de Ven) who leaves her husband (Peter Faber) for another woman (Maria Schneider), with the consequences of losing her children.

THE COOL LAKES OF DEATH (Van de Koelen Meren des Doods), one of the masterpieces of Dutch cinema, is a melodrama that tells the tragic story of a wealthy woman (Rene Soutendijk) whose sexual desires lead to a life of mental illness, drug addiction, and prostitution on the streets of Paris during the 1880s. Both A Woman as Eve and THE COOL LAKES OF DEATH were the Dutch entries for 'Best Foreign Language Film' at the Academy Awards.

No, we only ship inside the US

Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.

We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.


All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.

Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.

Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.

If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.


We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
