The story of a romantic relationship between a grown-up and a child. Set in the Netherlands near the end of WWII, the film is a flashback recalling an adolescent relationship between Jeroen and a Canadian soldier. A difficult subject handled with style and feeling. Written by
In the truck, when Gertie soils herself, one of the boys says that from now on she will be known as "Dirty Girtie." However, although this rhymes when spoken in English, the characters where speaking Dutch, with English subtitles shown, and it does not rhyme in Dutch, which is clearly what was intended for humorous effect.

I was happy that I was able to see this movie. I was very moved by it, by the truth of the way the relationship between the boy and the man was shown. I was also happy to see it on the IMDb, and know that Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, etc., had not been able to get all the tapes burned.
The wonderful thing about the movie is that it avoids judgment-- negative or positive--about the relationship. The relationship happened. The people involved were not bad. And yet, the fact that the boy never got over the love of that man suggests the inherent inbalance in that type of relationship. Do you think the soldier went through the rest of his life trying to find the boy?
At any rate, these are just my questions. The movie is innocent, and does not make judgments, ask questions, or give answers, as befits a beautiful work of art. This movie needed to be made.
