Trivia

Was produced as a three-part miniseries, but deemed good enough for a theatrical release (in a shortened version). Due to this, the movie was excluded for the most important categories at the Dutch Film Festival. See more »

Goofs

For most of the picture, when Jan is not in police uniform, he wields a .45 Colt style automatic. The weapon used in the movie is not a Colt manufacture (likely Belgium) and has modern target sights - not likely to be found on prewar or wartime .45s. See more »

War makes beasts of men.....
14 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

War makes beasts of men. Not that Dries Riphagen was much of a human being to start with.

This is a wartime film that tells the story of Nazi collaborator Dries Riphagen. An underworld figure, who saw his opportunity for personal gain when the German's invade and occupy the Netherlands during WWII.

Whats especially horrid about Riphagens activities, aside from his betrayal of Jews hiding from the Nazi's and resistance groups, is how he compels innocent people to become complicit in his barbarity.

This is an excellent film.Its well acted and directed, with a matter of fact style. It does not moralize nor does it indulge in sentiment. As a result, for me at least, its emotional impact is heightened. Its a hard, hard watch at times and whats especially galling, is this indecent man, evades post wartime punishment, escaping to Argentina.

Riphagen has subtitles but really, this is no obstacle. This is a compelling, if horrifying watch, that offers an insight into how war corrupts the human spirit. Eight out of ten from me.
