When author Kluun was asked if he wasn't worried that a first-time director would be adapting his book, he simply replied that he was a first-time author when he wrote it.
The story as adapted from the novel by Kluun is partially autobiographical. In fact, some family members of Kluun's deceased wife (played by Carice van Houten in the movie) are present in the wedding celebration scene.
The Dutch title (Komt een vrouw bij de dokter) actually means "a woman goes to the doctor", which is the opening sentence of many jokes.
