Zeemansvrouwen (1930) is a Dutch film directed by Henk Kleinmann, and was intended to be the first ever sound film produced in the Netherlands. Instead, it became the last official Dutch silent film and the last film that would appear between 1930 and 1934. There would be semi-amateur films made in this interim.
Willem is a well-meaning sailor, that visits the pub of Tante Saar when he returns home. He sees the beautiful Leen come there often as well, who he falls in love with. She is together with Lau until Lau is sent to prison. Willem and Leen then get to know each other better and he promises to marry her after his next return from sea. But upon his return Lau is back in her life and a cat and mouse game arises between the two men.
