Excellent movie about the bungling Dutch resistance
This movie gives a good insight in how a well meant act of resistance (against the German occupation in WWII) goes awry, due to incompetent and amateuristic leadership. The picture it paints of the Dutch resistance is not flattering, but it also shows how difficult it was for the well meaning members to effectively organize themselves and arm themselves against collaborators and traitors.
