Worthwhile movie!
9 May 2014 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

The movie takes us back to the Netherlands during the Second World War, showing different perspectives (rich, poor, etc) and different cities.

I saw a lot of negative reviews here and felt I should put in some positiveness after actually seeing it.

We should not compare it with box office Hollywood productions, in particular when looking at the special effects.

The lead actor Jan Smit is charismatic and there is good chemistry with the lead actress.

In summary I think there is an audience for this movie and some people will indeed appreciate it!
