Holland as it was
21 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film/documentary again, after 44 (!) years and, like wine, it has improved with age. This is probably because of the time difference - thing truly were different nearly half a century ago. The Memorial Day (May 4) sequence is touching and brilliantly filmed. Haanstra found some WW II footage and re-shot those locations after 20 years with some nifty editing. The(Dutch) commentary was written and spoken by Simon Carmiggelt, a Dutch word smith par excellence, by Haanstra's invitation. I noticed that Carmiggelt knows when to be quiet and let the images speak for themselves. The English VO is by Peter Ustinov. This film is often 'accompanied' by the ten minute short 'Zoo', Haanstra's observations of humans in the Amsterdam zoo Artis. In many instances he placed the camera inside the cages, giving us a look at humans from the animals' perspective. A pearl!
