The young woman Laura Fischer has a session with a psychologist. The session begins with Laura telling that after two years of successive rapes of female students riding bicycles in the woods nearby the campus of the college where she studied, the student Emma Machielsen forms a committee with Josien Schippers, Marieke Kopermode, Bonnie Javoer and her to discuss a possible solution with the dean. However, the dean claims that he has no budget to improve the security and could only afford to provide three buses for the students. The girls decide to bike through the woods together in convoy, but when Marieke is late, they leave her alone in the campus. She decides to cross the woods alone, and the serial rapist rapes her. Her friends decide to investigate the crimes by themselves and they prepare a list of possible rapists, leading the group to a tragic consequence. Written by

The title of the movie means 'silent night'. When I hear this title I think of the woods in the movie which I find scary. Especially if you can imagine being a student and having to ride through a dark forest at your way home. This was a great Dutch movie and actually a whole lot better than most American movies. That's because it has something to it, it's not like the regular expectations you get while watching an American movie that's been made like a 1000 times. It was deeper. Also the new talent in the movie, like Victoria Koblenko, was great. The movie is about five young students who start looking for a serial rapist themselves when the police is getting nowhere. When one of the girls gets raped, things get serious. This movie is the proof that Dutch movies are getting better and better. I especially hope to see Victoria Koblenko, Liesbeth Kamerling and Josefien Hendriks back in many movies.
