Summer 1943. Tuur and Lambert are best friends. The surrounding of their idyllic village has no secrets for the teenagers. From the farm of Lamberts dad to the marl caves in the woods - it's their world. But the war is closing in and is about to change their lives forever. Tuurs dad joined the resistance and even his big brother seems to be a part of it. Lamberts family on the other hand choose to obey the Germans. Then a new girl from the city shows up, befriending the boys but telling her secret to only one of them. A choice that separates the boys and ultimately gets her in trouble. Tuur not only risks losing his friendship with Lambert, but even his whole family. He will have to stop at nothing to safeguard both. Written by Dutch FilmWorks

During the Occupation of The Netherlands (1940-1945) two boys find an American comic book, presumably left by a downed American pilot. This comic book, a dangerous item in those days, reappears in scenes that follow, until one of the boys' mother confiscates and burns it. The magazine that ends up in the stove is a 1952 reprint, which follows from the cover design (Classics Illustrated instead of Classic Comics) and the cover price (15c instead of the regular '40's price of 10c.).

It takes place in the Province where I was born and lived during WW2
13 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I cannot vote because I need to see the film first ! This seems not possible here in Canada at present. Can you supply a viewing privilege or purchase of the CD ? I am currently living outside the Montreal area and foreign films are shown in Montreal movie houses frequently. But to wait could take ages and I would really prefer to see it as soon as is possible because, as you can see from my age, time flies ! The rest I need to fill because of the minimum requirement which obviously makes me a vociferous person ! So I have to resort to a filler of sorts to satisfy this preprogrammed requirement, which I am desperately trying to meet (not being a man of many words !)
