Costume drama about the turbulent marriage of Sjoukje Bokma de Boer (best-known under her writer's pseudonym Nynke van Hichtum) to the Socialist leader Pieter Jelles Troelstra at the start of the last century. Written by
great (acting, costumes, music, actors, directing, story!)
This wonderful film is a love story, and shows that not all relationships are destined to last. Even so they can be great & worth the pain & suffering of breakup.
Director Pieter Verhoeff gives us an insight of the period around 1900, the way society (mis)treats women, and how a very strong woman (Nynke) deals with. With great costumes, landscapes, lovely music and good actors and acting this photoplay draws you in for the length of the movie.
At first the ending is a bit sudden, a page describing the rest of her life scrolls. On reflection this is a great (the best) way to have your own fantasy create the rest of her life.
This was the second movie for me that had people sit while the end titles scrolled by (The first being Schindler's List). Apparently the movie had this effect on everybody.
