The idea for the film was from Hans Teeuwen and the screenplay was written by Theodor Holman. Director Theo van Gogh describes in an interview that he had four wishes for the film: "At first the roles of the interviewer and the person being interviewed had to change slightly. I wanted Pierre Bokma for the role of the journalist and three turns in the scenario. And Katja had to win."
