Rarely are my emotions left so raw. This film left me hoping that the current generation of teenagers and young adults is as committed and dedicated as those in the movie. Their story of bravery and self-sacrifice was so well told, as was the evil of Hitler's regime. As one who began reading about the Nazi atrocities and heroism of the Dutch underground over 40 years ago, I saw and recognized what I already knew to be true. This film was well researched and the events were accurately depicted. I was left inspired both politically and spiritually.
I know many critics will have a bias against films that have an overtly Christian message and will allow that to influence their reviews of this film. That is unfortunate for the quality of this film in terms of cinematography, acting, writing and editing is on par with anything coming out of Hollywood. I was so wishing that I owned a copy so I could watch it again. This will be one of my favorite re-watch movies.
