Stijn (Barry Atsma) loves life and life loves him. He's got his own business, a wonderful daughter and Carmen (Carice Van Houten), his beautiful wife. There's no need for her to know that he occasionally enjoys the pleasures of other women. His heart belongs to Carmen, and that's all that matters.

Their idyllic world is shattered when Carmen goes to the doctor and hears the diagnosis every woman dreads. Life falls apart and they embark on a roller-coaster ride for survival. Though supportive at first, Stijn soon escapes from the new harsh reality into the arms of the sexy, care-free Rose. As Carmen is bravely going through treatment, Stijn will learn what it really means to love.

Based on the best-selling novel that was translated into 26 languages, LOVE LIFE (A Woman Goes to the Doctor) enjoyed huge domestic market success with a gross of over $13 million at the box office. Produced by OscarĀ® winning producer Hans de Weer (ANTONIA'S LINE) the movie stars internationally acclaimed Carice van Houten (Paul Verhoeven's BLACK BOOK, Tom Cruise/Bryan Singer's VALKYRIE and REPO MAN).
