Spetters 1980 ( Full Movie )

A Dutch film, post-Saturday Night Fever, which follows the lives of three young men who are amateur dirt-bike motorcycle racers. They each fall in love with a young woman who, with her brother, sells French fries and hot dogs at the races. Everyone is looking for a better life. She wants out of the business and away from her brother. The motocross racers want to make their marks as professional racers, like their hero, played by Rutger Hauer.

In the beginning of the 1980s, Paul Verhoeven's Dutch movies had come to the attention of Kathleen Kennedy, who showed them to her business partner Steven Spielberg. Spielberg was hugely impressed with Soldaat van Oranje (1977) and even considered recommending Verhoeven to his friend George Lucas as a potential director for Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). However, he changed his mind after seeing the sexually explicit Spetters (1980).
