The Fury by André van Duren
Fury, The

Fury, The

The fury amuses and astonishes the viewer. But when we find out what happened to her in her youth we are left devastated, and a shiver will replace our smile.

We meet Albert Egberts’ Aunt Tini. She is jokingly known as Tidy Tini as her cleaning and polishing is both ferocious and ruthless. She has a relentlessly acerbic tongue, ruining many family celebrations. As a boy Albert eavesdropped on her and tried desperately to fathom what she meant by her semi-explicit faultfinding. As a student he even ended up in bed with her. But once he becomes a father himself, he seems set for a major confrontation in which all family secrets are finally revealed.
