When Rika is in the camps, sitting outside in the rain, she has a flashback to an earlier scene that took place shortly after Waldemar moved in and they were all dancing outside in the rain with her young children. In the Flashback, Sonny Boy (who's not born yet at that time) appears as a teenager dancing in the rain as well. See more »

beautiful
3 February 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Very beautiful movie with a sad ending. It is a dutch movie. A few years ago the book Sonny Boy appeared. I haven't read it then, but I will now. It's a very beautiful but also a sad story. The language is Dutch en German. However the German doesn't sound really good, you can hear that the actors are Dutch. But that's the only critic I have. After a true story. I had to cry a lot, I usually don't do that very quick. I hope many people will see this movie. Also the recordings in Suriname are very beautiful. I hope this movie wins a (at least Dutch) award! It takes a lot to write ten lines because I don't speak and write very good English.
