In the scene where Guus is walking trough a Dutch street he sees a shop whose windows have been whitened and written over with anti-Semitic phrases. The actual shop owner didn't wanted to change his showroom into 1940s style to favor the filmmakers, so they painted the window white and wrote anti-Jewish phrases on it so that the man wouldn't have to change his showroom.

SOLDIER OF ORANGE is a film about a group of friends who encounter the occupation of Holland by the Germans in different ways. The film splits up it's time dealing with the stories of the friends and that of one of them who becomes a high ranking member of the OSS and close political ally to the queen of Holland. The film, set during WW2, is even handed in it's approach. SOLDIER OF ORANGE is a unusual film and was made with a high degree of quality. The film goes for a sense of realism not often seen in cinema, the film,made in Holland is in dutch yet in the sequences in england it is in English. I recommend this film to WW2 buffs and fans of art-house cinema alike. Both groups will be pleased as will foreign film fans who can be assured of finding something worthwhile.
