6/10
29 September 2002 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Being a Frisian, watching this movie was an odd experience for me. First of all the use of my motherlanguage (is that even a word?). As it does in music, it doesn't quite get to me. It all seems so... close perhaps? It makes me feel pretty uncomfortable (as it does with usage of the dutch language as well. I prefer English). Anyway, the movie is well made, and the storyline is pretty interesting as well, set at the end of the 20th century when Communism and Socialism got a grip on the poorer half of the people (and, one could argue, the more righteous, but let's not get into that). What I do like is the fact that Verhoeff didn't make the socialists too sympathetic and the 'law' too harsh. On the other side, although I believe the movie is based on a true story I found some parts a bit hard to believe. Also I'm not such a huge fan of Tuinman, the central person in the movie. In short, not a bad movie (if you can stand subtitles), and one of the few big Frisian movies made. So check it out. I personally would like to give De Dream a 6/10.
