Luger is a 1982 Dutch film directed by Theo van Gogh. The film was written and directed (his debut) by van Gogh and was filmed in black and white.
The lead role (Chris Luger) is played by Thom Hoffman who plays a psychopath with fascist tendencies. The other main role is played by Laurien Hildering (her only acting credit).
The film is about the kidnapping of the mentally impaired daughter of a millionaire. The kidnapping is an attempt to get rich quickly by the main character. The father refuses, however, to pay the ransom.
The film was controversial as it contained a scene in which two kittens were put in a washing machine.
