Pieter Kramer was born in Utrecht in 1952, and studied directing at the Amsterdam Theatre Academy. From the early 1980s he has directed many stage plays. Since the end of the eighties he has also worked for television; among his major successes have been the programmes Theo And Thea and 30 Minutes. His work has been honoured with the Nipkow Award, two Golden Calf Awards and the Albert Dalsum Award. In 1999 Kramer directed the theatrical production of Yes Nurse! No Nurse! based on the TV series by Annie M.G. Schmidt and Harry Bannink. The enormous success of the stage version led to this screen adaptation, which is the director's first full-length feature film.
