Great movie, even for a Dutch one
29 September 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This film is almost as good as it's original (the book). I would even dare say it might very well be one of the best Dutch movies of all time. The line-up is great, all actors are still working as an actor, but most of them never came near this achievement again. Where ever you may be from, it really would be worth your while to trace this film and watch it.
