Franse Auteur Houellebecq verliest Zaak over Film, waar in hij Seks heeft

Entertainment Redactie

De beroemde Auteur Michel Houellebecq heeft voor de Tweede Keer een Rechts Zaak over een Film van het Nederlandse Kunst Collectief KIRAC Verloren. De Franse Hoofd Rol Speler is daar in te zien, terwijl hij Seks heeft. Na dat hij de Trailer had gezien, wilde Houellebecq Niet Meer, dat de Beelden worden Vrij Gegeven. De Recht Bank in Amsterdam ging daar Niet in mee.

De 67 jJrige Auteur stapte Eerder Al naar een Franse Rechter, maar die oordeelde, dat de Film KIRAC (27) zijn Privacy Niet schendt. Houellebecq moest de NederlandseFfilm Maker Stefan Ruitenbeek een Kleine Schade Vergoeding betalen.

Houellebecq wilde de Film, die door Sommige Media als Porno wordt Bestempeld, laten Verbieden sinds hij de Trailer had gezien. Daarin is de Schrijver Onder Meer Zonder Shirt in Bed te zien, terwijl hij een Jonge Vrouw kust. Op Basis van die Trailer noemde hij de Film “Lasterlijk” en “Een Explosie van Geweld“.

In de Trailer vertelt Ruitenbeek, dat Houellebecq hem had geschreven. dat zijn Huwelijks Reis naar Marokko was Geannuleerd uit Vrees voor een Ontvoering door Moslim Extremisten, terwijl zijn Vrouw een Maand Bezig was geweest “om van uit Parijs de Prostituees Al Vast te Regelen“.

Houellebecq stelde in de Amsterdamse zaak ook de Geldigheid van zijn Contract met KIRAC ter Discussie. Zo zou hij op het Moment van de Onder Tekening Depressief zijn geweest en zou hij het Contract in Beschonken Toe Stand hebben Getekend.

Auteur had Vol Doende Tijd om Op Over een Komst Terug te Komen

Maar het is volgens de Rechter “Niet te Begrijpen Waar Om Houellebecq Wel heeft Mee Gedaan aan de Op Names als hij de Over een Komst Echt Problematisch vond“. Tussen het Tekenen van het Contract en het Begin van de Opnames van de Film zat volgens de Rechter Boven Dien “Genoeg Tijd om Terug te Komen op de Inhoud van de Overeenkomst en, als dat Niet tot een Op Lossing zou leiden, te Beslissen zijn Mede Werking te Weigeren“.

KIRAC laat via Advocaat Christiaan Alberdingk Thijm weten, dat het de Bedoeling was om een Kunst Film te maken “Waar in het Niet Al Tijd Duidelijk is Wat Feit is en Wat Fictie“. Zo zou het voor de Kijker Onduidelijk zijn of het Daad Werkelijk Houellebecq is, die Seks heeft.

Film Maker Ruitenbeek zegt “Op Gelucht” te zijn door de Uit Spraak. “Het is Al Tijd mijn Bedoeling geweest een Integer Portret te maken. Hopelijk kan Michel zich vinden in het Resultaat.” KIRAC liet eerder weten, dat de Release van de Hele Film, die Oor Spronkelijk Gepland stond op 11 maart, is Uit Gesteld als Gevolg van de Rechts Zaken.

Houellebecq publiceerde in Nederland Onder Andere de romansOnderworpen en Elementaire Deeltjes.

Michel Houellebecq Sex Film to be Released despite Attempt to Stop it

Amsterdam Court dismisses French Author’s Complaint against Film that shows him Having Sex with Young Women

A Dutch Art Collective can Release an Experimental Erotic Film showing the French Novelist Michel Houellebecq having Sex with Young Women in Spite of the Author’s Attempt to stop Its Circulation, an Amsterdam Court has ruled.

Amsterdam’s District Court on Tuesday Afternoon dismissed A Legal Complaint by Houellebecq and his Wife, Qianyun Lysis, that had Aimed to Curb the Distribution of the Film KIRAC (27) by Keeping It Real Art Critics, as well as A Trailer that was Uploaded on the Art Collective’s Website last Month but has Since Been Taken Down

The Clip shows the 67 Year Old Enfant Terrible of French Letters in Pyjamas lying on A Bed Next to A Woman in A Nightie, Smoking and Laughing. “Itold him that I knew Many Girls in Amsterdam who would Sleep with the Famous Writer Out of Curiosity,” A Voiceover says.

According to the Court’s Verdict, the Idea to have the Author of Submission and Atomised Star in an Experimental Porn Film to “Counteract his Gloom” had First been Proposed to KIRAC’s Co Director Stefan Ruitenbeek by Houellebecq’s Wife at A Dinner in Paris in Autumn 2022.

Via Email, Houellebecq and Ruitenbeek Subsequently Discussed Plans to Make “A Work of Art, in Which the Distinction between Fiction and Reality takes Shape as A Game with the Rancorous Paranoia of your Enemies”.

Upon Arriving in Amsterdam for Filming on 1 December 2022, the Writer signed A Release Form, Agreeing to Appear in A Film that “May or May Not include Explicit Content”. The Agreement’s Only Restriction was that the Film would Not Show Houellebecq and his Genitals in the Same Shot.

Summarising the Original Plan for the Film, the Court said the Split between Images of Faces and Genitalia “Would Leave the Viewer in Wonder as to whether Houellebecq Actually Participated in the Sex Scenes, or whether A Stand In in them was Acting for him”.

However, on 23 December, Three Days before the Scheduled End of the Shoot, Houellebecq Walked Out on the Project. In A letter published on his Personal Website, the Writer said his and the Dutch Director’s “Conceptions of Artistic Work were Radically Opposed”, likening it to “Gutter Journalism”.

In his Complaint to the Amsterdam Court, Houellebecq Argued that he was Struggling with Severe Depression at the Time of Signing the Agreement and had Drunk Several Glasses of Wine.

The Court dismissed his Objection for Lack of A Doctor’s Certificate Proving Houellebecq’s Condition, and Questioned Whether Wine had been Drunk before Rather than After the Signing of the Agreement.

If the Intended Ambiguity of the Art Film had Narrowed, the Verdict concludes, “It is At Least as Much the Result of Houellebecq’s Attempts to Prevent Disclosure of the Footage”.

Earlier this Month Another Court in Paris rejected A Complaint in Which Houellebecq had Argued the Film’s Trailer Damaged his Private Life and Honour, as Well as Spreading Lies about his Wife. The Film’s Planned Premiere on 11 March was Nonetheless Postponed due to the Two Lawsuits.

The Legal Row has Pitted One of the Most Flamboyant Polemicists of the European Literary World against A Dutch Group with A Similar Taste for Courting Controversy. Under the KIRAC Guise, Artists Stefan Ruitenbeek, Kate Sinha and Tarik Sadouma have Since 2016 Released Short Films on YouTube that Explore and Make Fun of the International Art World, Often Mingling Factual and Fictional Elements in Ways that are Hard to Keep Apart.

In Interviews, Houellebecq has Repeatedly Defended the Principle of Women being Paid to Have Sex, Heavily Criticising his Home Country for Making Prostitution Illegal in 2016. In his 2001 Novel Platform, A Semi Autobiographical Protagonist called Michel wanders around Thailand as A Sex Tourist.

While Legal Action had Delayed the Editing of KIRAC 27, Ruitenbeek said he Expected A Final Cut of the Film, including the Disagreement with its Star Performer, to be Released in May.

It has Always Been my Intention to Make an Artwork with Integrity”, Ruitenbeek said in A Statement. “Hopefully Michel is Happy with the Result.”
