Quite enjoyable movie, but historically maybe about 5-10% correct.
17 March 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

When I first read about this movie I was pleasantly surprised. Making a movie about Oss in the Netherlands depicting the problems (crime, poverty) in the 1930's. I read a lot about what happened in that period. Moreover my grandfather was a member of the Marechaussee in Oss in those days. He was – to say the least – responsible for the arrest of a lot of those criminals in that period. That's why I have to say, that this movie doesn't give an accurate picture of the situation in that period. Not at all to be honest. There are a couple of persons (whose names are different in the movie of course) who really existed in those days and have committed the crimes that you can see in the movie. But apart from that the movie isn't historically correct. Well, that doesn't have to be a problem of course, since most of the viewers know nothing of what happened during those days in and around Oss. So it doesn't bother me really. What does bother me really very much is the fact that in the end of the movie people can read on the screen that many of the Marechaussee members joined the NSB (a pro Nazi movement in Holland in those days). That is absolutely not true. There may have been a few, but most of them joined the underground resistance, who helped American and British pilots to escape from the Germans). In my opinion the movie makers should have been more careful in making such a statement. Apart from that it is not a bad movie. The settings are OK as well as the clothing, the speech (dialect the people speak). The movie depicts the atmosphere of life in those days in a Dutch small city. All in all a nice movie to watch on a rainy afternoon. But keep in mind that the link to the real situation in those days isn't really present in the movie (well maybe for about 5%).
