Roeland Fernhout does it again
29 March 2004 | by (The Hague, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Nice 'telefilm' by the maker of 'van god los'. Roeland Fernhout proofs his talent and Angela Schijf is getting better and better. I was disappointed about the romantic plotline, the film was good enough as it was. Still... when you are interested in Right Wing Politics from 'The Black Widow' (Rost van Tonningen) or just looking for a good quality dutch film this is surely one to watch. The script is very solid, based on a novel. The acting from all of the actors is quite good, specially Fernhout. It makes you think about how to deal with former warcriminals and makes you wonder if this a real possible storyline. Don't forget the check the things the movie puts forward as to be facts!
