Robert van Gulik (19101967) is one of the world’s most read Dutch authors. This diplomat, sinologist, and scholar is mostly known for his thriller novels featuring the series’ hero, Judge Ti. These books are regarded as projections of his own life in many aspects, like a dialogue between him and his fictive protagonist. This duality also plays a role in this film, where reality and fiction mesh into a confusing dream.
