In the movie Julia is saved by a helicopter the morning after the flood, and the wind and water are calm. In reality, a strong gale was still blowing the day after, preventing an air rescue. See more »
I might be a bit prejudiced, because I am from The Netherlands, where this all happened. I've seen this movie this weekend, I was overwhelmed by its reality. I didn't see it all happen, but some folks in the theater did, and they were crying about all memories coming back. This means, in my humble opinion, that the movie is very realistic, even with a budget so low, game-studios can't make a decent game with this amount of money. I guess that the people in New Orleans also need to see this movie, so they know why the Dutch are now helping with their struggle against water. Watch this movie, it might be an Oscar-winner! Also keep checking out Dutch movies, some of them are real gems. Try to watch movies like TBS, Van God Los and Lek. These are some of the best Dutch movies. And of course, Zwartboek, Blackbook(by Paul Verhoeven!)!
