Burly, balding, French-born, Dutch-raised director, at his most successful in the 1990s. He also made River Phoenix's last film, Dark Blood, which was finally, painstakingly completed two years ago. He began his career with a half-hour film, Hold Back the Sea (1961), but it was the suspense thriller The Vanishing (1988) that made his name; he also directed the 1993 Hollywood remake. Other films included John, the Knife and the River (1972), Twice a Woman (1979), Red Desert Penitentiary (1985), Utz (1992), Crimetime (1996), The Commissioner (1998) and The Stone Raft (2002).
