The Longing by Joram Lürsen
Longing, the

Longing, the

The very attractive Brigitte - who is a terrible writer - switches roles with an unsightly and stuttering author in order to sell his literary masterpiece.

When the beautiful Brigitte shows up at publisher Goudemondt with a terrible manuscript, brothers Marc and Boudewijn (directors of the ailing family-run publishing house) sense an opportunity. They make her switch roles with the unsightly and stuttering author of a literary masterpiece. The trick works and the book becomes a huge success, but the initial agreement between all parties turns into bitter strife as everybody claims that the success was of their own making.
