Even with all the pressure around the State Opening, Beatrix goes back in time, and remembers her banishment to Canada, the visit to the victims of the Flood disaster and the turbulence suffered by her parents at Palace Soestdijk during the Hofman case.

Crutzen is royalty, magnificent.
20 January 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When i heard what the movie was about i gotta say, it seemed quite boring to me. However Crutzen makes a helluva Queen Beatrix who mourns her late husband while juggling political decisions and doubts about the legitimacy of a monarchy. Now this still sounds boring to me, but it isn't. There is humor and dynamics. This could have been one of those long dialogue epics.

Even for those with no knowledge of Dutch monarchy, which is almost everybody except for 16 million dutch people, the story makes it accessible. It was one of the things that pleasantly surprised me about it. What makes this film work above all though, i can't put my finger on it, it's the atmosphere and the warmth maybe or just the magnificent performance of Crutzen. The rest of the cast is nothing to sneeze at either but Crutzen takes the royal cake.
