I have a copy
18 November 2006 | by (Belarus) – See all my reviews

Hi i actually have a copy of this movie, I recorded it on VHS when it was shown by the BBC in the 1980s! However all my tapes are in storage right now, as I am in the process of moving house in the next few months, after this is done, I will look it out, maybe I can make some copies of it. I think it is a very fine film and I really liked the fact it was also filmed in Holland, it made good use of the landscape, and had much beautiful scenery. It actually made me want to visit the town where it was filmed called DeRijp. I am now planning a trip there later this year. I am surprised we didn't hear any more about Brett Marx as he seemed a very good actor. It is a pity Canada doesn't make this kind of film any more. I think it is a very unique and poignant effort.
